Personality Neuropsychology Laboratory (LNP) and Electrophysiology in Social Neuroscience Laboratory (LENS)


The main objective of the LNP laboratory is to enhance our understanding of the psychological mechanisms that contribute to the development and duration of behaviors and disorders associated with impulsivity while that of the LENS lab is to study the neurophysiology of individual differences in hostility, anger and aggressive behaviors in the general population and in the clinical population. Both the LNP and the LENS labs use several investigative methods in their research projects such as cognitive laboratory tasks, electroencephalographic recordings (EEG) with events-related potentials (ERP), behavioral observations, interviews, projective tests and questionnaires


Impulsivity, aggression, neurophysiology, hostility, anger, inhibition, social cognition.
