UT Research Programs
Our Department offers many research programs and laboratories. These programs strive to contribute to both the research in the field, as well as to the community.
Faculty in our Clinical Ph.D. Program conduct research through the Center for the Study of Anxiety Disorders and Depression (CSADD), the Program for the Study of Immigration and Mental Health, the Coordinating Center of Excellence for Wellness Management and Recovery (WMR), the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Lab, the Psychological Assessment Lab, the Cardiovascular Psychophysiology Lab and the Mood Disorders lab.
Our Experimental Program faculty conduct research on the latest theories and topics of interest through the Cognitive, Developmental, Social, Cross-Cultural, and Psychobiology and Learning Labs. This research includes such things as stereotypes, and prejudice, decision-making, social comparison and comparative judgement, the perception of vulnerability/risk, the formation of affect and emotions, the role of expectations, comparative differences in hearing processes, the accuracy of children's courtroom testimony, the effects of effort and secondary reinforcement on learning in single-cell organisms, and the cerebral lateralization of perceptual, motor, and cognitive functions.
