Lab for the Developing Mind
Our research investigates the neurophysiological and behavioral basis of self-regulatory processes from infancy to adulthood. We are interested in the regulation of thought, emotion, and behavior and experiential influences on them over the course of development. Regulatory processes are essential for well-being across the lifespan. The goal of our work is to advance our scientific understanding of regulatory processes to promote health. We take a multi-level, interdisciplinary approach to understanding the complexity of these processes, using observational, behavioral, electrophysiological, and eye-tracking technologies to study them.

Our lab is committed to student development and civic science. The lab offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct research with infants, children, adolescents, and adults. Research activities include testing participants, coding behavior, recruiting families, data management, and reading scientific literature. Our lab works with the local community to share the science of child development.
The lab provides interdisciplinary training to Ph.D. students in Prevention Science. Graduate students receive advanced training in theory, electrophysiological methodology, and experimental research. Please contact Dr. Perone for more information.
