Cognitive Psychophysiology Laboratory

 San Francisco State University 

All of the research in the lab concerns with some aspect of psychophysiology, and we are involved in multiple collaborations with a number of other labs at San Francisco State University.  The primary concerns investigated in the lab involve quantifying sensations and perceptions electrophysiologically.  The studies conducted in the lab often originate from students’ own ideas.  Current topics include psychopharmacology, auditory language processing, person perception and categorization, emotion in social contexts, decision making, and spontaneous thought. Upcoming projects include differentiating conscious and unconscious processing, facial emotion detection, bilinguals’ executive processing. Past projects include music and emotion, spatial memory, test validity, and basic figure perception.
