Developmental Cognitive Affective Psychophysiology (DCAP)
The DCAP laboratory is located in the Department of Psychology (room 2016 of the Geology and Psychology Building) at the University of New Orleans (UNO).
The DCAP laboratory examines the neural correlates underlying various self-regulation strategies. In every-day-life we use numerous self-regulatory strategies to effectively navigate our complicated lives. In order to emulate real-world self-regulation, we design new tasks or modify existing tasks, and examine task-specific neural activation, using dense-array EEG/ERPs and various inverse models (e.g., LORETA). Our research examines two overarching research questions: 1) How do these self-regulatory neural correlates differ in more or less emotional contexts and 2) how does the development of these neural correlates differ between typical and atypical development?
