The Northwestern Social Cognition Lab (SCL) investigates the the basic mental processes underlying social behavior. We investigate a wide range of issues in the areas of attitudes, social cognition, and intergroup relations, with a particular focus on person perception, the processes through which we form impressions and evaluations of others. We also investigate how basic research in the area of attitudes and social cognition can be used to understand consumer behavior and promote responsible, sustainable patterns of consumption.
