Justin Storbeck

Phone: 718-997-3200

Justin Storbeck (Assistant Professor, Psychology) received his B.S. degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his Ph.D in Social Psychology from the University of Virginia. Dr. Storbeck runs the Queens Affective Neuroscience Laboratory. The laboratory investigates the cognitive costs and benefits of emotions using the brain imaging technique of EEG, creating a visual window into neural activity during emotional states and cognitive tasks. Dr. Storbeck is specifically interested in seeing how emotional states change brain activation patterns (e.g., prefrontal asymmetries) and whether the different activation patterns can predict cognitive performance. The main question we seek to answer is: How do emotional states influence thinking and memory? Specifically, can emotional states guide how we learn new information, and as a result influence memory for better and sometimes for worse?
