Cognitive regulation and response modulation of emotions refer to evaluating the situation one faces in order to alter the emotional response to it either by changing how the situation is perceived or by managing the emotional response the situation poses. But it’s not certain whether emotional experience and response can be modified directly, although cognitive and behavioral strategies can be employed to modify the emotions indirectly. The present study was done to assess the level of cognitive emotion regulation among 50 medical and 50 non-medical college students and whether the medical sample was more efficient in their cognitive emotion regulation. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the emotion regulation among the two groups.
