Welcome to the webpages of the Intergroup Relations Research Lab in Psychology at Michigan State University. The lab is directed by Dr. Carlos D. Navarrete, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. Research in the lab adopts an evolutionary perspective on cognition, attitudes and behavior relevant to intra and inter-group phenomena. Current projects explore the links among intergroup bias, coalitional and sexual aggression, and moral judgment. Links to the left and below provide more information. Methods include experiments that employ questionnaires, physiological measurement, preferences for certain visual stimuli, and reactions to 3-D images in immersive, virtual environments (or "virtual reality").
