Welcome to the Chair of Health Psychology!

Our main research aims revolve around the associations between acute as well as chronic stress with human health. Our work aims to understand causal, pathophysiological pathways driving health detriments in individuals living under chronic stress, or with affective disorders. The key pathway we are focusing on is inflammation, and we study how it is regulated by stress system activity and reactivity (read more under research).

We offer courses in General Psychology I (Sensation and Perception, and Cognition), Biological Psychology, and Health Psychology.
