Welcome to iART
Impulsive-Aggressive Research Team!

About the Lab

The Impulsive-Aggressive Research Team (iART) seeks to add to understanding of impulsive and aggressive behaviors perpetrated against others as well as the self. We use a variety of methods, including surveys, neuropsychological tests, laboratory-based stress inductions and heart rate monitoring to test relationships among suicidal behavior, physical dating violence, arousal, executive attention, rejection sensitivity, hostility, impulsivity and aggression. Social factors including level of acculturation and exposure to aggressive behavior are also of interest.

The lab is under the direction of Dr. Megan Chesin.
