Attitude and Decision Making Lab

In the Attitude and Decision Making Lab we are primarily concerned with how implicit evaluations, gut feelings and emotions—versus more analytical and deliberative mental processes—impact attitudes, judgments and decisions. People often have emotions and spontaneous feelings that color their judgments.  We look at how these processes influence evaluations of others, as well as influence decisions, specifically in the context of life-altering medical decisions. This latter work aims to inform the development of patient decision support tools.
