The eye’s pupil: a reflection of the mind

Changes in the size of our pupils are most commonly known to occur as a biological response to light changes in our environment—like when we walk into a dark room and our pupils become larger to let more light in. Our pupil size also unconsciously changes in other situations, reflecting brain activity. In this talk we’ll examine what these pupil changes can tell us about how we process emotional information, with a specific focus on attraction. We will look at both the potential and the challenges of this method and how we might be able to use this knowledge in future applications in health and security.
