We study the mental and neural processes that create emotions


Welcome to the Carolina Affective Science Lab, Directed by Dr. Kristen Lindquist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 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 in health and disease.
