Humans are complex dynamic systems, with feelings, thoughts, and actions that are interconnected and that change over time.

Using intensive repeated measures data collected online and in the wild, the studies will demonstrate how zooming into processes unfolding over the course of minutes, hours, and days can provide insight into depression, nicotine withdrawal, and curiosity.
