Psychophysiology Laboratory

The Psychophysiology Laboratory has focused on a variety of topics relating to the hormonal regulation of behavior.  Much of the most current work of the laboratory has focused specifically on defining biological and social factors involved in sexual orientation. 

Here are examples of the most recent conference presentations where our research is being reported:

  • Protti, T. A., Nelson, R. K., & Lynch, C. S.  (June, 2015).  Gender differences in sexual attraction during exposure to natural human pheromones.  Poster presented at the 19th Annual Meeting of the Society for Behavioral Neuroscience, Asilomar, California.
  • Nelson, R. K., Protti, T. A., & Lynch, C. S.  (August, 2016).  The effects of sexual orientation and human sweat exposure on men's perceptions of sexual attraction.  Poster presented at the 20th Annual Meeting of the Society for Behavioral Neuroscience, Montreal,     Quebec, Canada.
  • Protti, T. A., Nelson, R. K, & Lynch, C. S.  (August, 2016).  Effects of pheromones and sexual orientation on sexual attraction in women.  Poster presented at the 20th Annual Meeting of the Society for Behavioral Neuroscience, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Also, there are undergraduate projects that are ongoing in the laboratory that are ongoing in the laboratory, where students have an opportunity to get first-hand research experience.  These students also have opportunities to earn course credit (PSYC 497 and PSYC 498) or complete an Undergraduate Honors Thesis.
