Our Communication and Psychophysiology Lab (CAP Lab) focuses on understanding “the dynamics of cognition and communication” (the DOCC), especially:
- Emotion and cognition during message processing and media choice behavior;
- Reciprocal dynamics of media use behavior and media effects;
- Psychophysiology and dynamic modeling methods;
- Quantum probability models of cognition and decision; context effects on communication, decision and choices.
