At the Higgins Lab we study the motivational underpinnings of perceptions, judgments, decisions, and behaviors, in a wide range of contexts, from romantic relationships to military training. We embrace a motivated cognition framework in pursuing both basic and applied questions relating to self-regulation. Some of our main areas of current study are interpersonal processes, motivation effectiveness & performance, and self-regulation & emotion. We are also affiliated with the Motivation Science Center at Columbia Business School.
