Ethan Kross, Ph.D.
The overarching goal of Ethan's research is to shed light on the psychological and physiological processes that enable people to adaptively regulate impulses and emotions that undermine their goals and compromise their health. He uses a variety of tools (e.g., behavioral, diary, physiological, neuroscience-fMRI methods) to address this issue and focuses on both normal-healthy and clinical populations.
