Cyberpsychology Lab

Jon D. Elhai, Ph.D.
Director
Cyberpsychology Lab

As computer technology and mobile devices have become more widely used in recent years, examining the impact and role that such technology has in our everyday lives has become increasingly important.

I hold several specialty interests in the area of Cyberpsychology:

  • Anxiety and worry about internet hacking, and how such anxiety motivates people to protect their online privacy.
  • Mental health clinicians’ practices for securing their electronic patient communication.
  • Problematic internet and smartphone use, and correlates with psychopathology.
  • Fear of missing out (FOMO) and relations with social media addiction.
  • Social anxiety and associated compensatory social media use.
