Human Interaction Research Group

The Human Interaction Research Group examines how behavioral, emotional, and neurological changes occur in participants during interpersonal situations. To test this, we collect data from participants in group and dual situations using a variety of methods. In addition to observing and analyzing behavior, interpersonal interactions are studied with questionnaires and interviews, as well as psychophysiological measurements.  Our laboratory was one of the first workshops in the 1980s to extend hypnosis research to hypnotists, and also to investigate the effects of suggestive communication. Our results include theoretical innovations and many methodological developments related to the research of interpersonal interactions. In addition to laboratory projects, we also conduct clinical research in oncology, perinatal and intensive care. We welcome all students who would like to participate in our work.
