The Pennsylvania State University

Penn State is Pennsylvania's only land-grant university and has a broad mission of teaching, research, and public service.

The Penn State College of Health and Human Development is committed to improving the quality of your life.

The Motivation Lab is a dynamic learning community founded in shared values of collaboration, competence, and creativity. Our goal is to move people to live healthier and happier lives. We develop, evaluate and refine evidence-based approaches to make health behavior change enjoyable and efficient. We use psychological theories to understand how people adapt their thoughts, feelings and actions across contexts, and the impact of those adaptations on their health. We apply technology to reach people in the natural context of their daily lives. We believe less can be more.
