Welcome to Dr. Chein’s Control & Adaptive Behavior Laboratory – CAB Lab!

In the CAB lab, we explore the cognitive processes that underlie adaptive behaviors – like making good decisions, choosing task-appropriate strategies, finding solutions to difficult problems, forming and maintaining healthy habits, and dealing well with distractions, emotional arousal, and social influences on behavior. Our work focuses on the central role of self-regulatory control processes in supporting favorable outcomes in each of these contexts.
