About Us

Welcome to the University of Michigan Self-Control and Emotion Laboratory. We explore how people can control their emotions to improve our understanding of how self-control works and to discover ways of enhancing self-control in daily life. We adopt an integrative approach to address these issues that draws on multiple disciplines within psychology including social, personality, clinical, developmental, and neuroscience. We integrate across these areas in terms of the types of questions we ask, the methods we use to address them, and the populations that we focus on.
