Request for permission to use photo for scientific research. (WTF!!)
I am a doctoral student doing research at the interface between Psychology and Social Neuroscience. Work from my laboratory has been published in well-known scientific journals. Currently we are conducting studies exploring how people form impressions about others and what brain areas are involved in cortical face processing.
A caray! me sentí como conejillo de indias, pensando que era una broma segui leyendo...
Probably you want to know more about what is done in such a study and therefore I will explain it briefly: In a typical experiment pictures are shown to subjects and they answer questions regarding the images. Importantly, while subjects are watching the pictures, their brains are monitored using high-level techniques such as EEG (Electroencephalography), MEG (Magnetoencephalography) or fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging). All of these methods are used in order to find out how the brain works during a given task. Using this approach one may try to answer research questions such as how does the brain react when viewing an attractive face... (WOW! como que me esta cayendo bien el tipo ;) ) ...versus a less attractive one (Que queeeeee!! espero que no se atreva !!).
