The Health, Emotion, and Aging Research Team (HEART) is supervised by Dr. Gloria Luong. Our lab group examines how individuals develop the abilities to regulate emotional experiences and cope with daily stressors (e.g., interpersonal tensions) and how these skills can be harnessed to promote healthy and successful aging. The HEART also investigates how socioemotional development varies across diverse cultural and environmental contexts and its implications for health and well-being. We use a variety of techniques to understand the inter-relations between health, emotion, and aging processes, including laboratory paradigms, psychophysiological assessments (e.g., cardiovascular reactivity), and experience sampling methodology.
