The Auburn University Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory (CAN Lab) was created in 2012. The lab consists of a complete psychophysiology laboratory outfitted with a BIOPAC recording system and associated modules to enable the collection of electromyograph (EMG), electrocardiograph (ECG), impedance cardiography, skin conductance, and respiration measures. Almost all of our physiological equipment is MR-compatible. Auburn University is home to a Siemen’s 3T and 7T MRI scanner, housed in a beautiful facility approximately 1 mile from the CAN Lab at the AU MRI Research Center. With that said, one of the most unique features of our lab is the ability to simultaneously collect neuroimaging data and autonomic nervous system measurements.
Our lab is broadly examining emotional processes, with the majority of our research aimed at elucidating the interaction between emotive and cognitive processes. Please feel free to poke around and learn more about what we are up to.
