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.


September 2020: Dr. Chiew will be reviewing applications for University of Denver Psychology’s PhD program. Information about the graduate program is available here. Applications are due December 1, 2020. If you have questions or are interested in graduate work in the lab, please email Dr. Chiew!
