Texas A&M University – Emotion Science Lab
Dr. Heather Lench, the principal investigator and director of the lab, researches the emotional processes that are the foundation of behavior and thought. In her experimental psychology laboratory, they examine the role of affective reactions and emotions in how people think about the future and what they think will happen to them in the future. They also investigate when and why particular emotions might improve functioning and decision making. These concepts are applied to improve well-being and satisfaction in people’s romantic relationships, workplaces, and lives.
