The InSPHIRe lab is a joint effort between Drs. Jason Rose and Andrew Geers aiming to inform health research, behavior, and outcomes using social psychological principles. Some of the common themes in our research include the placebo effect, risk perception, patient choice, and social comparison. We are located at the University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio, USA. For more information about the lab and our research, please see the links above. Also check out the UT Department of Psychology for other research and department news.
