Multiple colleges and departments across campus have partnered up for a preliminary study that will explore the science of emotions.

The School of Social Work has partnered with College of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Engineering and Department of Psychology for a pilot study using electroencephalogram, also known as neurofeedback, to identify brain signals related to emotions. The study is being conducted to better understand human behavior, said Anh Phuong Nguyen, social work doctoral student and graduate research assistant at School of Social Work. [Source: The Shorthorn]
