Heather L. Urry
Associate Professor of Psychology


Ph.D., University of Arizona, 2001


Heather L. Urry received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology in John Allen's lab at the University of Arizona. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in affective neuroscience in Richie Davidson's lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Professor Urry established the Emotion, Brain, & Behavior Laboratory (EBBL) at Tufts University in the Fall of 2005. Research in the EBBL focuses on learning how the brain and body work together to let us experience, express, and regulate emotion. Tools include functional magnetic resonance imaging, peripheral psychophysiology (skin conductance, EKG, facial electromyography), eye tracking and pupillometry, and behavioral measures.
