Current Research Activities


  • Psychophysiology and Health Laboratory

  • Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research
  • Doctoral Candidate, Mark Goetz
    My research team's activities involve laboratory studies and community-based efforts in the area of health promotion and disease prevention. The Psychophysiology and Health Laboratory is a three-room suite located in the Department of Psychology, while our community-based efforts are mostly conducted under the auspices of the Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research in the Medical School.
    Psychophysiology and Health Laboratory

    The Psychophysiology and Health Laboratory, located in the Department of Psychology (Corwin-Larimore Hall -- 4th Floor), provides facilities and equipment for controlled and quasi-controlled studies of issues related to health promotion and disease prevention. The laboratory has the necessary psychophysiology equipment, computer capabilities, and media technology for studying participants' autonomic, behavioral, and self-report responses to various stimuli. Two rooms are designed as participant study rooms, while the third room contains most of the laboratory's equipment and serves as a control room. The following provide examples of the type of studies our research team has been conducting in this laboratory in past years:

    Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research

    I currently oversee the Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research's (CHPPR) evaluation programs, the development of projects aimed at reducing health disparities in Native Americans, and graduate student training in prevention science. I joined CHPPR as Senior Research Scientist in 2002. Students working on my research team become Research Associates at CHPPR and take various roles in community-based assessment and intervention projects. In recent years, these projects have included school-based tobacco use prevention programs, worksite health promotion and wellness programs, school-based cardiovascular risk reduction programs, an anti-tobacco media campaign, an enhanced prenatal care program in disadvantaged communities, and assessing health diparities and behavioral risk factors in Native Americans living in rural communities. These projects and others are described on the Center for Health Promotion and Prevention Research's web site.
