Project Description

Individuals vary greatly in how well they can regulate their emotions, and difficulties in emotion regulation have been linked to disorders such as depression. So what are the different psychological and neural processes that allow some individuals to respond adaptively while others fail to do so? Can we identify individuals who are more resilient based on temporal aspects of emotional responding? Does cognitive capacity play a role? A PhD project focusing on aspects under the general "emotion regulation" umbrella can use a mixture of observational methods, psychophysiology (i.e. heart rate, skin conductance, muscle tension) and/or brain imaging (including FMRI) to examine the mechanisms underlying successful emotion regulation. The specific topic and population studied within this broad scope will be further defined based on mutual interest.
