The Emotion Lab, directed by Noga Cohen, is located in the Faculty of Education at University of Haifa. The Emotion Lab studies the ways in which emotion, attention and cognitive control shape human behavior and experience. We use a combination of behavioral, psychophysiological and brain imaging methods to understand adaptive and maladaptive emotion regulation processes. We study basic emotion regulation mechanisms and design cognitive interventions with the aim to improve emotion regulation among healthy and clinical populations.
