Bio

Daniel Landers arrived at ASU in Fall of 1981. Prior to that he was a faculty member at The Pennsylvania State University for 7 years, the University of Washington for 2 years, the State University of New York at Brockport for 2 years, and the University of Illinois-Champaign-Urbana for 2 years. His faculty appointments were Associate Professor at University of Washington (1972), Professor at The Pennsylvania State University (1980), and Regents' Professor at Arizona State University (1990).

Research

Research in the Exercise and Health Psychology Laboratory is directed toward an analysis of exercise effects on selected mental health variables. Recent research emphases include examination of the effects of exercise on (a) relaxation/mood alteration, including anxiety and depression; (b) ability to cope with psychosocial stressors, (c) quality and quantity of sleep, and (d) cognitive functioning. In approaching research in these areas, a variety of research methodologies are employed, including meta-analytic (quantitative) reviews of the research literature, and questionnaire, behavioral, and psychophysiological measures. Psychophysiology, which examines the interrelations among psychological and physiological variables so that underlying behavioral mechanisms can be better understood, is often used as an unobtrusive measure to enhance interpretation of behavioral and questionnaire findings. Dr. Landers research, now consisting of over 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals, has been recognized by the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (Alliance Scholar Award, 2005-06), and the North American Society for the Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity (Distinguished Scholar Award, 1995).
