About the Cognition and Emotion Lab

Welcome to the home of the Cognition and Emotion Lab (CEL) in the Florida State University School of Communication. The CEL is directed by Associate Professor Dr. Russell B. Clayton. The CEL is a media psychology research and teaching laboratory devoted to investigating how biologically, psychologically, and sociologically relevant factors interact to affect how individuals cognitively and emotionally process and respond to different types of media messages and technologies. The CEL (room 4402 in University Center C) houses equipment for the measurement of automatic psychophysiological measures, such as cardiac activity, skin conductance, and facial electromyography, in addition to response latency metrics and behavioral measures, among others.  The CEL is an active lab member of the International Communication Association's (ICA) Information Systems Division and Communication Science and Biology Interest Group.
