Orienting: A Behavioral Neuroscience Tool to Build Resiliency in the Face of Stress
Behavioral Neuroscience: Attention and Stress
Developed from the latest behavioral neuroscience, we are testing an intervention where undergraduate students will learn SE skillswith the goal of building self-regulation and resiliency in the face of stress.
The research project includes collecting psychophysiological variables such as heart rate, skin conductance, heart rate variability, and respiratory sinus arrhythmia, measured through electrodes placed on the fingers and a strap that is placed around the ribcage. We will be asking students to practice SE skills both in the lab, and out in the world in their every day lives, taking pre and post measures.
