The overall research mission is dedicated to the investigation of individual's capacity for flexible changes for external and/or internal influences in different age groups. Of primary current interest is the measurement and role of flexible emotional shifting in mental health.  One of our current research projects is focused on exploring the changes on the performance of neuropsychological tests measuring executive functions and risk taking before and after social stress in teens. Other ongoing collaborative project aims to investigate the role of gross motor skills in early executive functioning in toddlers and how specific yoga taining could improve both in this age group. We are also interested in how atypical development, such as preterm birth can influence long term cognitive and emotional processing.  Our research group also investigate the effect of specific diet(s) on biological and neuropsychological outcomes in obese and non-obese subjects. Furthermore, current study focuses on the correlation between body composition and neuropsychological performances.  The ultimate goal of our laboratory is to develop new measurement of emotional shifting capacity and design potential intervention for improving flexibility in emotional shifting.
