Regulatory processes play a critical role in understanding human behavior, informing motivation, decision-making, and reward and reinforcement, with various implications for physical and mental health outcomes across systems and the individual. Sharing and disseminating research on affective and behavioral regulatory systems provides an essential and rare opportunity to propel interdisciplinary research in this area.

In pursuit of this aim, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is hosting an interdisciplinary mini-conference, entitled, New Insights into Affective and Behavioral Regulatory Processes. The conference will be held at Rutgers, New Brunswick on Saturday, April 15, 2017. The mission of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of scientific information, foster discussion of new ideas and findings on regulatory processes, and encourage collaboration across disciplines.
