Jim Blascovich

Distinguished Professor Emeritus/Research Professor

Nancy Collins

Professor

Daniel Conroy-Beam

Assistant Professor

Dan uses an evolutionary perspective to examine human mating psychology. He combines computer simulations with studies of real couples to help understand the nature of mate preferences, mate choice, and romantic relationships.

Distinguished Professor

Miguel Eckstein

Professor

Aaron Ettenberg

Distinguished Professor

Behavioral, pharmacological and physiological manipulations are combined in attempts to understand the nature of the brain mechanisms subserving the reinforcing effects of food, water, sex and psychoactive drugs.

1) To understand the neural mechanisms of cognitive priority control in attention and working memory. 2) To understand the impact of global physiological states on cognition. 3) To use brain activity to decode cognitive states and augment performance. Dynamical Neuroscience
Michael Goard

Assistant Professor

Scott Grafton

Distinguished Professor

Dr. Grafton supports an interdisciplinary research program at the interface of learning theory, the organization of skilled action, network science, and multimodal brain imaging.
David Hamilton

Distinguished Professor Emeritus / Research Professor

Mary Hegarty

Professor

Jerry Jacobs

Research Professor, Distinguished Professor Emeritus

The biological basis of mammalian (especially, primate) color vision and its evolution.
Emily Jacobs

Assistant Professor

Dr. Jacobs' research pairs endocrinology and brain imaging techniques to determine the impact of sex steroid hormones on brain morphology and function.
Skirmantas Janusonis

Associate Professor

Dr. Janusonis studies serotonergic and other stochastic axon systems, with a focus on comparative neurobiology and computational neuroscience.
Ron Keiflin

Assistant Professor

Our lab studies the neurobehavioral basis of associative learning and decision-making (adaptive and maladaptive). We use sophisticated behavioral tasks in rodents, in combination with modern tools to monitor and manipulate neural activity.
Heejung Kim

Professor

Heejung Kim investigates cultural influences on psychological processes, and their implications for important real life outcomes, such as health, education, immigration, and policy support.
Tod Kippin

Professor

Stan Klein

Professor

Regina Lapate

Assistant Professor (Starting July 1, 2020)

Dr. Lapate investigates the mechanisms and neural circuitry underlying emotional processing, awareness, and emotion regulation. Her multi-modal approach includes recordings of peripheral physiology, brain imaging, and non-invasive brain stimulation.
Zoe Liberman

Assistant Professor

Zoe Liberman studies infants and children to learn about the origins and developmental trajectory of humans' understanding of the social world. Her research is at the intersection of developmental and social psychology.
Diane Mackie

Professor

Research in the Social Evaluations and Emotions lab focuses on the evaluations, emotions, attitudes, and norms that arise from social group membership and underpin a wide range of phenomena in intergroup relations and social influence.
Brenda Major

Distinguished Professor

Impact of perceived ethnic, gender, and weight-based stigma and discrimination on psychological stress, health behaviors, and interpersonal relationships. Resilience. Impact of diversity, diversity policies, and anti-bias norms on intergroup relations.
Richard Mayer

Distinguished Professor

educational psychology, cognitive psychology, multimedia learning, online learning, computer-based instruction, learning with games and virtual reality, learning strategies and study skills, science and mathematics education, animated pedagogical agents
Michael Miller

Professor and Chair

Kyle Ratner

Assistant Professor

Kyle Ratner investigates face processing in an intergroup context and the consequences of social perception for mental and physical health. His research uses theories and methods from social psychology and cognitive neuroscience (e.g., fMRI, EEG).
Ben Reese

Professor

Russ Revlin

Research Professor, Associate Professor Emeritus

James Roney

Professor

Jonathan Schooler

Professor

The Center for Mindfulness and Human Potential
David Sherman

Professor

Ikuko Smith

Assistant Professor

Thomas Sprague

Assistant Professor

My work uses computational methods applied to noninvasive human neuroimaging (fMRI; EEG) to understand how neural processing of visual information changes across manipulations of attention, working memory, and eye movements.
Karen Szumlinski

Professor

Dr. Szumlinski’s major research interest concerns the biochemical mechanisms underlying the changes in brain and behavior produced by chronic exposure to drugs of abuse.
Vanessa Woods

Assistant Teaching Professor

Hongbo Yu

Assistant Professor

Dr. Yu combines behavioral experiments, neuroscience and computational modeling to understand the relationship between emotion (e.g., guilt, gratitude) and morality and their neural representations.
