National Institute of Mental Health Grant Received!

Dr. Caitlin Hudac and Dr. Mengya Xia received a National Institute of Mental Health grant to study brain processes and eye movement patterns when adolescents look at faces. Their goal is to understand how different aspects of face processing are related to real-world social skills and other parts of biology (including puberty). This grant will be used to train undergraduates in research, including how to use and analyze eye tracking and electroencephalography (EEG) data, ethics, and scientific implications. Be on the lookout for more information as they launch this study!
