JMC constructed the Lifespan Emotional Development Laboratory (LEDlab) to accommodate the research of an incoming psychology professor at Northeastern University. The lab provided a new space for research on the links between attention and emotion throughout the adult lifespan to determine how individuals of different ages manager their emotions. Research is also performed to determine what role attention plays in emotion regulation and maintenance of well-being.

“I'm writing to thank you and your team for your expert work in constructing the state-of-the-art Lifespan Emotional Development lab (LEDlab) for our newest faculty member in the Psychology Department, Dr. Derek Isaacowitz. Your team was mindful of the needs of others in the department as the construction process unfolded and was flexible in terms of scheduling specific aspects of the project so as to impact our ongoing research and teaching as little as possible. We now have a highly functional new laboratory in a key area of research – and a happy new faculty member."
