Welcome to the Carolina Affective Science Lab


We are a group of interdisciplinary scientists directed by Dr. Kristen Lindquist in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina. We use the tools of social cognition, physiology, and neuroscience to understand how people experience emotions in their own bodies and see them in others. We are interested in how these processes change across the lifespan and in health and disease.
