Interpersonal Interaction Lab


The Interpersonal Interaction Lab focuses on communication in a number of close relationship types, such as in romantic relationships, friendships, and family relationships. Studies conducted in the lab cover a range of topics, such as conflict communication, communication after sexual activity, physiological stress responses to couples’ conversations, and reciprocity of affect and disclosure. The lab also has a “wet lab” area where physiological samples can be collected through saliva or blood collection.
