Norman Farb is an assistant professor in psychology at the University of Toronto Mississauga, where he directs the Regulatory and Affective Dynamics laboratory (www.radlab.zone). A Fellow at the Mind & Life Institute, he studies the social neuroscience of the self and human emotion, with a focus on how biases in self-representation shape emotions to determine well-being. Dr. Farb’s work employs varied measures, including self-report, behavioral tasks, physiology, and brain activity. Dr. Farb is particularly interested in how training practices such as meditation and yoga foster resilience against stress, reducing vulnerability to disorders such as depression.
