  • Faculty Lecture: Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience Cat Norris (View)
    When: Tuesday, September 18th, 2018 4:15pm - 5:30pm
    Where: McCabe Library 100 Atrium

    Cat Norris, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience “The Good and Bad of Ambivalence: How Mixed Feelings Can Promote Change and Distract Attention, and What We Can Do About It.

    Ambivalence, the experience of mixed good and bad feelings, can both be an unpleasant, conflicted state and a catalyst for changing behavior. Norris will talk about a series of studies that we have conducted to understand these seemingly contradictory findings. Using both behavioral and event-related brain potential (ERP) measures, she has found that eliciting ambivalence in the laboratory negatively impacts performance on a series of subsequent cognitive tasks; and that simply allowing individuals to report their mixed feelings can alleviate these reductions in performance.
