Welcome!

A research center at the Harvard Decision Science Laboratory, the Emotion and Decision Making Group conducts research on the mechanisms through which emotional and social factors influence judgment and decision making. We take an interdisciplinary approach to these topics, drawing primarily on psychology and economics to examine emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and biological systems.

The lab also actively pursues a teaching mission, training undergraduate and graduate students in relevant theories, methods, and statistical analyses. We invite you to explore the site.
