Welcome! We are a cognitive and affective neuroscience lab directed by Dr. Kimberly Chiew in the Department of Psychology at the University of Denver.

We investigate the psychological and neural mechanisms by which motivation and affect influence human cognition and behavior, with a specific focus on cognitive control and episodic memory processes.

We use a combination of methods, including behavioral paradigms, psychophysiological measures, functional neuroimaging (fMRI), and video analysis of behavior, to investigate these relationships in both laboratory and naturalistic settings.

We anticipate accepting at least one graduate student for Fall 2018. Information on the DU Psychology PhD program is here. Please email Dr. Chiew if you are interested in graduate study in the lab. Applications are due December 1, 2017.
