Emotion Cognition Lab

Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Emotional Regulation and Cognitive Processes

The Emotion Cognition Lab (ECL) focuses on experimental research on cognitive process and emotion regulation in normal psychology and psychopathology. Our current research projects focus on the role of repetitive negative thinking (RNT), and non-adaptive daydreaming.

What we do

One of ECL’s objectives is to apply the latest methods and technical solutions to measure psychological processes, and to tests how new technologies may be applied to psychological interventions.

Interdisciplinary Character

These goals influence the interdisciplinary character of ECL, which gathers scientists who represent various disciplines, such as psychologists, information technology specialists, engineers, and user experience experts, who specialize in participatory design. Consequently, ECL follows the Living Lab approach, which provides opportunities for direct collaboration between researchers, designers, practitioners, and potential users of new tools and solutions.

Research Projects

The Center researches the impact of new technologies on psychological processes and investigates whether new technologies may provide solutions in emotion regulation.

Repetitive Negative Thoughts

Research has shown that the content of negative thoughts is not the key factor causing low mood, but rather the way this content is processed as well as the attention and executive functions (i.e. the self-regulation resources) have a crucial influence on mood. One of the biggest methodological challenges is examining cognitive processes, such as RNT, not just by relying entirely on descriptive methods, but also by employing objective measurements taken in conditions that resemble the daily life of research participants, as closely as possible. In the projects financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) and in a project financed by the SONATA 15 funding scheme, provided by the National Science Center, ECL researchers strive to combine two challenges, ecological conditions and very precise laboratory measurements.

The Center develops new measurement methods of attention, executive functions, and cognition processes, using tools such as eye-tracking, mobile applications, and virtual reality. Additionally, our researchers analyse data provided by declarative and psychophysiological measurements, such as the galvanic skin response (GSR) or changes in heart rate.

HASE Research Initiative

The Human Aspects in Science and Engineering (HASE) project, conducted in collaboration with other leading research centers, including the XR Lab at the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology (PJATK), the VR Lab at the Institute of Psychology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN), and the Laboratory of Interactive Technologies OPI-PIB, comprises different aspect of a wide range of mixed reality tools, including virtual and extended reality.

The goal of these projects is to determine whether the use of virtual and extended reality may support cognitive training (mindfulness training) in specific user groups, for example in the elderly. Another interesting research challenge in this area is an attempt to align the work environment in ecological conditions with the cognitive load of people working in different types of office spaces, by using virtual reality tools..
