Research Area: 

This project will use functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to determine the extent to which brain activity can predict real-world political behavior in response to persuasive messages, and to study the underlying mechanisms that lead to effective persuasion. This research was conducted with former Communication Neuroscience Lab Post-Doc Dr. Jason Coronel.
