Dr. Adam Aron is a Professor at the Dept. of Psychology at UC San Diego

  • His research has two parallel streams: cognitive neuroscience and social psychology of the
    climate crisis
  • At the Aron Lab, researchers study how people control themselves. In experimental psychology, this is the field of “executive function” or “cognitive control”.
  • He is also involved in Teaching, Organizing and Researching around the climate crisis.
  • In April 2020, Professor Aron also published a paper in Neuron on how neuroscientists need to
    put emissions reduction into the fabric of all their operations.
  • In order for urgent action at a large­ societal scale to prevent the worst consequences of climate change, there are many cognitive questions that need answering and studying. Better understanding the prospects for such action can come from human psychology.
