Mechanisms of Emotion, Social Relationships, and Health (MESH)

This initiative seeks to promote deeper understandings of the complex interplay between social processes, biological systems and mental and physical health outcomes. Primary approaches to accomplishing the MESH mission include:

(1) investigating the effects of family and relationship dynamics on bodily systems linked to health, including the autonomic nervous system, the neuroendocrine axis and the immune system;
(2) examining the effects of bodily processes, such as the immune and autonomic nervous systems, on social functioning; and
(3) developing and testing novel psychosocial interventions for enhancing child development, improving relationships and reducing the incidence of stress-related emotional and physical disease.
