E-Cog: Emotion & Cognition Psychology Research Centre
Dr. Mariya Jilinskaya-Pandey* and Dr. Derick H. Lindquist#
Psychology is a diverse scientific discipline with nearly boundless applications to everyday life. The Emotion & Cognition Research Centre will explore how emotional and cognitive processes operate, independently and interactively, to influence behavior, learning and memory, decision making, work performance, well-being, and other facets of psychology. The Centre will employ an interdisciplinary perspective, informing and drawing from such diverse fields as philosophy, sociology, education, economics, criminal justice, political science, history, literature, and technology (e.g., Artificial Intelligence).
The Centre focuses on basic research questions and the translation of research findings into real-world applications. The goal is to advance, communicate, and apply psychological principles and findings to make a positive impact on critical societal issues in India and around the world.
