Masicampo Social Psychology Lab
Home People Publications Join the lab WFU Psych

We examine a variety of topics, including self-control, goal pursuit, decision making, conscious thought, and moral judgments.

Our experiments address such question as:
  • how do one's surroundings influence one's ability to diet or meet other goals?
  • what determines the contents of one's thoughts?
  • how does energy from food influence one's ability to think and make decisions?
  • how does observing others' behaviors affect one's ability to exert self-control?
  • how do perceptions of free will and responsibility affect one's willingness to engage in mentally effortful tasks?
