Exercise Psychophysiology LabThe primary focus of the Exercise Psychophysiology Laboratory is on the role of exercise in promoting physiological, neurocognitive, and psychological resilience. The lab uses advanced psychophysiological techniques including impedance cardiography and electroencephalography to better understand acute and chronic adaptations to exercise, and how knowledge of these adaptations can be applied to intervention development. This work is helping to elucidate mechanisms underlying the effects of exercise on mental health states (e.g., anxiety and depression). A secondary focus is on correlates of youth and adult physical activity behaviors.
