The focus in our research is how we as humans regulate our feelings and attentional resources. These processes comprise self-regulative abilities important for our functioning at school, work and in social communication in the everyday life. We apply different methods to measure these regulative processes such as self-reports (questionnaires and interviews), clinical and experimental test paradigms, psychophysiology (heart rate variability) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
