About This Project

Most adults, when looking at emotional images, show similar brain waves. Adults with mental disorders show different waves.

We don't know what preschooler's brainwaves look like (because no one had created a picture set that could be used with preschoolers). Our lab has created a set! This study will explore how preschoolers process emotions neurally. If consistent brain waves are found, we can begin to look at clinical populations, which could lead to early detection of mental illness.

Blast off!
