Welcome to the website of the Social and Affective Neuroscience (SAN) Lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of Oregon.

The SAN Lab studies how motivational factors and neural systems influence goal pursuit.  Our research program is guided by the belief that studying the intersection of basic neural processes, cognition, affective and motivational systems, and long-term behavioral outcomes is the best way to understand how people succeed or fail in their goals.
