Research on stress and emotion

We conduct both experimentally controlled laboratory studies (with focus on manipulation of stress responses and on experimental induction of emotions such as anger, fear and disgust) and field studies (e.g. stress evoked by exams, shift work or emotion suppression in the workplace). In this respect, subjective, behavioral, cognitive and somatic (peripherally physiological, endocrinological, immunological and neurophysiologic) reactions are measured.
