What Biosensors Reveal in Test Anxiety Research: an iMotions Customer Chat

Today’s episode features iMotions Product Specialist Dr. Pernille Bülow and Dr. Erick Bourassa, an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and Physician Assistant Studies at Mississippi College.

iMotions is a fully-integrated, hardware-agnostic software platform that allows researchers to use the power of any neuroscience technology, as well as traditional surveys and focus groups, to gain unparalleled insight into what people actual think and feel. At iMotions, Pernille consults and trains academic and commercial researchers on multimodal biometric data collection and study design.

We are joined by iMotions customer Dr. Bourassa, who joined MC’s faculty in 2014 and currently teaches Vertebrate Histology, Pharmacology, Virology, Cell Physiology, Pharmacology of Infectious Diseases, and Pharmacology & Therapeutics. One area of his research expertise includes alterations of normal attention and memory in patients with anxiety disorders. Currently, his research efforts are focused on identifying the abnormal neural circuitry that induces and maintains anxiety in patients with anxiety disorders.

The three talked about mental health in education and performance research, the role of biosensors in mental health research and Dr. Bourassa’s work in studying test anxiety in students using biosensors. Listen to learn more.
