Political Engagement and Cognitive Health Lab

More lab details and project descriptions coming soon!

The Political Engagement and Cognitive Health Lab at the University of Texas at El Paso tackles research questions at the intersection of mental well-being and politics. Housed in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, research in the lab takes an interdisciplinary approach to answering questions on how the mental wellbeing of individuals affects their engagement with politics. 

Selected projects: 

How do mental well-being interventions influence political engagement? 

How is cognitive well-being (and stress) related to engagement with misinformation?

How is mental health related to political attitudes? Is the relationship dependent on emotional states?

How does trait level anxiety affect engagement with political information and the expression of attitudes?
