What We Study
Kang Lee Lab has conducted research in a variety of areas including: deception in children and adults, racial bias, bias reduction in children, and fraud among senior citizens. Our studies have also focused on understanding brain development and brain processes of infants and adults using neuroimaging technology called functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS). We have also conducted research using transdermal optical imaging technology to measure physiological changes such as heart rate and blood pressure from a person's face.
