Motivation and Emotion Research Laboratory


Lab Director: David Gard


We study the basic science of emotion and motivation in the general population using measures of self-report, psychophysiology, and behavior. We then apply these findings in studies with individuals with various disorders including schizophrenia and depression. The laboratory is located in the Ethnic Studies and Psychology building at San Francisco State University. For more information about the lab please see our Getting Involved page or our page on Research Projects.
