Welcome to the Cognitive Neuroscience of Affect, Memories, and Stress (CAMS) Lab!

We study why we remember certain parts of our experiences, how stress and affect change different memories, and how what we remember guides our behavior.

The lab is led by Dr. Elizabeth Goldfarb. We are based in the Department of Psychiatry at the Yale Stress Center and conduct research at the Yale Magnetic Resonance Research Center.

We are committed to creating an inclusive, thoughtful, rewarding, and intellectually stimulating environment to conduct our research.


We are actively recruiting participants for online, behavioral, and brain imaging experiments. If you are interested in participating, please send an email or complete the form.
