CoSAN LAB (Cognitive, Social, and Affective Neuroscience; PI: Prof. Aglioti):
Conducts research at the interface of various disciplines with the aim of studying cognitive and emotional processes within social contexts.
Focuses on studying psychological factors contributing to individuals' ability to cope with various life and interpersonal contexts, promoting psychological and subjective well-being.
Aims to conduct research in the following areas: 1) Psychometric analysis of psychological assessment tools; 2) Study of personality and its development over the lifespan; 3) Investigation of personal and organizational factors in work-related stress and counterproductive behaviors; 4) Cross-cultural study of individual and organizational variables contributing to job security perception and job safety; 5) Analysis of methods for assessing work-related stress risk in real contexts, focusing on systems developed by institutional bodies, and national and international surveys.
The laboratory aims to develop studies on the socio-cognitive and motivational determinants of various health behaviors (adoption of healthy behaviors, breastfeeding, protection behaviors from infections, donations, volunteering, etc.), quality of life (in rare diseases and chronic pathologies), and investigates the role of positive resources in the relationship between chronic stress and health/disease outcomes.
Focuses on studying human personality as a psychological system that mediates the relationships between the individual and the environment. Special emphasis is given to the study of personality processes and structures through longitudinal methodologies.
