SELF-REGULATION EMOTION AND ATTENTION LAB PI: Dr Julia Vogt
WELCOME The Self-Regulation, Emotion, and Attention Lab is located at the University of Reading, UK. We study questions such as: What does attract people’s attention? Do people see what they want to see (or fear)? How do people know about and identify objects and people that are instrumental in reaching their goals? How do people identify and solve conflicts between their many goals, motives, and desires? What do emotions motivate people to do? And can pursuing valued goals help people to cope with negative emotions?
