University of Missouri



Welcome to the Regulation of Emotion, Addiction, and Conflict Trajectories (REACT) Lab located in the University of Missouri Department of Psychological Sciences in Columbia, MO. Directed by Dr. Sean Lane, research in our lab focuses on the development of quantitative models of personality and psychopathology. Current projects include a range of substantive areas, such as alcohol use, PTSD, BPD, and narcissism, linked by common themes such as transdiagnostic constructs and processes (e.g., emotion regulation). Our laboratory is invested in interdisciplinary collaboration, the promotion of empirically-based classification/diagnostic systems, and the Open Science movement. Additionally, Dr. Lane is the Co-PI of the SuperPower Project, an NIH R01-funded interdisciplinary team committed to the development of new methods for supporting best scientific practices, focusing on power. Specifically with the SuperPower Project our lab is involved in development and dissemination of quantitative methods tools to assist end users in their implementation in research and practice, including a meta-analysis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Naltrexone in the treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD).
