Welcome to the Affect Regulation and Cognition (ARC) Lab at Yale University! The lab’s primary research goal is to gain a better understanding of how basic cognitive processes and individual differences in emotion and mood regulation increase the risk for the onset of depression and anxiety disorders, and hinder recovery from these disorders. We are currently working on a number of projects that integrate psychological and biological risk factors and investigate the role of attention, memory, and emotion regulation in the onset and maintenance of mood disorders and anxiety disorders. We also started projects that investigate factors that might explain the high rates of co-occurrence of depression and anxiety and that examine possible interventions. We are located in Kirtland Hall (2 Hillhouse Avenue) on Yale’s Main Campus.
