The research conducted in the

Neuroscience of Emotion and Thought (NET)

Lab, directed by Dr. Jessica  Andrews-Hanna at the University

of Arizona, is centered on understanding the mysteries of our inner mental lives – the thoughts, memories, feelings and emotions that make us unique as individuals.  We explore these topics across levels of brain and behavior, drawing on techniques including functional MRI, psychophysiology, and mobile experience sampling in daily life. We study internally-guided cognition in young and older adults, and in healthy individuals as well as those suffering from mental health challenges. Ultimately, we hope our research will help people harness the beneficial aspects of internally-guided cognition and live happier, healthier lives.
