Note to Prospective Post Docs or Graduate Students:   Ann is no longer mentoring new postdocs or graduate students.

We are interested in how emotions help (and hurt) us in everyday life by examining the ways in which emotions influence social interactions, decision making, memory, prospection, and motivation. We ask questions about the linkage between these processes in people with and without different psychological disorders, including schizophrenia. We also study emotion and cognition change across the lifespan. We have used behavioral, self-report, psychophysiological, and brain imaging methods in our research.
