Welcome to the Gillath Lab website

Our research focuses on close relationships and their underlying mechanisms. We're also exploring the effects of increasing people’s sense of attachment security on their tendency to engage in pro-social behavior, their altruistic and sexual attitudes, and their goals, as well as their attentional strategies.

If you are interested in working in the lab please email Max Rulo (maxrulo20@ku.edu) or see the Opportunities page!
