EEG and Presidential Debates

Project measures EEG activity and GSR of a participant watching the democratic and republican debates. Pilot work was proposed to TEDx Syracuse to engage and seek collaboration with the local neuroscience and political community. Measurement of electrical dermal and brain activity is used to identify cognitive metaphors that characterize conservatives and liberals.
