About Our Lab

Welcome to the Emotion Regulation Lab (ERL) at Bar Ilan University. Our lab is interested in the role of emotions in healthy and atypical human functioning. The lab’s primary research goal is to gain a better understanding on how individuals differ in their ability to regulate negative mood. Individual differences in the ability to attenuate sadness and distress in context-appropriate ways represent a clinically meaningful link between stress and the emergence of depressed mood. Depression is a significant mental health problem and is a gateway to chronic affective difficulties.
