Welcome To the ABCs of Psychology Lab at Florida Gulf Coast University!
Under the direction of Dr. Krystal D. Mize, the research team studies Affect (emotion), Behavior, and Cognition across the lifespan. Dr. Mize has special interests in the role of evolutionary and developmental forces on the social brain but often branches out to study other topics. Her past psychological research has spanned the lifespan—from womb to tomb. Dr. Mize has publications on infant and child emotional development, touch and mindfulness interventions, and intimate partner homicide.
Participate in a Research Study
We are continuously creating ways for children and adults to contribute to the exciting world of science.
We are currently recruiting for an emotion development study:
- 4- to 8-year-old children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their typically developing peers
We are also recruiting for a study on Posterior Cortical Atrophy Syndrome (PCA):
- individuals diagnosed with PCA and their carepartners
- medical professionals who research or treat individuals living with PCA
Data collection will begin soon on the following studies:
- Parental investment and family relationships
- Early emotion development (infant jealousy)
