CMU Study Shows Emotions Can Be Identified Through Brain Scans
Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University say they have figured out how to identify people's emotions through their brain activity. It is, they say, the first time such identification has been possible.
"The research introduces a new method with potential to identify emotions without relying on people's ability to self-report," said Karim S. Kassam, an assistant professor who has a Ph.D. in psychology from Harvard University and the study's lead author.
