Their Eyes are the Window to Your Soul:  Researchers Seek Participants in Online Study

My name is Patrick Lown and my colleagues and I are conducting an online survey about people’s personal characteristics and beliefs, and how people are able to read emotions in other peoples’ eyes. The study is brief and interesting, and should help us understand how individuals think about other people and American society more generally. In our current political climate, I think developing an understanding of how people relate to one another is critical for America to thrive. I hope you will take a few minutes to participate!

The survey can be accessed by using the following link.  We ask you to please do not discuss your participation in the study for the next few weeks (please do not post comments), as to not influence other participants! 

The research team is based at Stony Brook University.  Questions about participation or results of the study can be directed to Patrick Lown at
