Culture Impacts Emotion Lab

PI: Birgit Koopmann-Holm

In my Culture Impacts Emotion Lab (CIEL), we aim to advance our understanding of the ways in which cultural factors (e.g., values, views of emotions, and engagement in cultural practices like meditation) shape people’s emotional lives. We are particularly interested in how views of emotions and attitudes towards crying impact (1) perceptions of and responses to others’ suffering, (2) conceptualizations of compassion, and (3) health and well-being. We use multiple methodologies and work on improving the analysis of data from frequently employed tasks (e.g., reverse correlation).
