Posted: Monday, June 6, 2016
Lora Becker, University of Evansville associate professor of psychology and director of the neuroscience program, has two appearances currently in print in very different sources.
The first is titled “Neurobehavioral toxicity of carbon nanotubes in mice: Focus on brain-derived neurotrophic factor messenger RNA and protein” and is co-authored by Babak Gholamine, Isaac Karimi, Amir Salimi, Parisa Mazdaran, and Becker. It appeared in Toxicology and Industrial Health on May 26. This is part of her ongoing collaboration with Isaac Karimi in Iran.
The second is an article titled "Why so Angry? The new faces of gender politics" that will appear in the June newsstand version of the national fashion magazine Allure. In this article, Becker explains how micro-expressions are expressed by the nervous system and how they can be used to understand reactionary human feelings. This is a result of a collaboration with Noldus.
