Project title: Impact of Actue Stress on Human EEG

Department: Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education

Faculty supervisor: Dr. Olav Krigolson

"The student will be using mobile EEG to examine whether or not acute stress can be measured with this methodology. The potential impact of this work is immeasurable as it could potentially lead to the development of a low cost too for examine stress in the work place. The student will test 100 participants from the UVic community and will examine the relationship between power in the different bands of the EEG spectra and a medically validated assessment of acute stress."
