About Our Lab

Expectations shape the way we think and feel. Our lab is devoted to the study of expectations, such as placebo effects, in the domain of health.  The more we understand this phenomenon the more it can be leveraged to improve patient well-being. The lab is directed by Dr. Michael Bernstein, an experimental psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
