E3 Lab Laboratory for the study of Emotion Elicitation and Expression

Research programs

Research in the Laboratory for the study of Emotion Elicitation and Expression investigates the cognitive mechanisms involved in the appraisal of relevant stimuli, and how these processes elicit emotions, and modulate perception, attention and memory.
Currently, five major research programs are developed. These research programs aim at empirically investigating:
  • The nature and function of relevance detection in emotion elicitation
  • Appraisal-driven facial expression of emotion
  • Mechanisms underlying emotional attention
  • Mechanisms underlying emotional memory
  • Emotional processing of olfactory stimuli
  • Bidirectional links between emotions and food intake
For more information concerning our research programs, please refer to our Publications page or contact Prof. David Sander.
