Training Program in Emotion Research

The training program in Emotion Research is directed by Richard J. Davidson and is funded by an NIMH Institutional National Research Service Award training grant. The program trains students at both the pre- and post-doctoral levels. The major activities of the training program include a year-long seminar on emotion theory and research that is co-taught by the training program faculty, participation in the annual Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion, attendance at monthly meetings of faculty and students on topics in emotion research, and ethics training, as well as other relevant activities on campus. A total of seven (7) University of Wisconsin pre-doctoral students are supported by the grant in any given year. In addition, three (3) post-doctoral trainees will be supported each year.
