The Behavioral Physiology Research Lab (GO-LAB) is part of the Department of Medical & Clinical Psychology at the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences (TSB).
In the GO-LAB we study the interrelations between emotions, behavior, and physiology, in the context of individual differences relevant to health and disease.
You may find an extensive description of our research mission and themes here. The techniques we specialize in include cardiovascular, respiratory, electrodermal and neurohormonal (e.g., cortisol) reactivity assessments in response to stress or cognitive challenges.
The physiological reactivity profiles are related to individual differences in emotional reactivity, emotional well-being, perceived stress in healthy research participants and individuals with chronic medical conditions. We also record non-verbal behaviors and facial expressions relevant to emotional valence and arousal.
The GO-LAB is a state-of-the-art research facility. The focus of GO-LAB research is on the interface between basic biological and psychological processes relevant to health and disease. Research conducted at the GO-LAB provides fundamental research relevant to the Department of Medical and Cllinical Psychology and other Social and Behavioral Sciences at Tilburg University as well as the Center of Research on Psychology in Somatic diseases (CoRPS). The GO-LAB also contributes to research-based learning in the Bachelor, Master and PhD programs within the TSB Psychology program.
