The event is free and open to the public.
Psychologists have long been interested in how liberals and conservatives exhibit different cognitive styles, and the topic is particularly relevant now with regard to the upcoming presidential election. Following a brief summary of previous research, the group will focus on more recent research from the journal Nature Neuroscience concerning the correlation of liberalism and conservativism using scalp recordings called event relation potentials (ERPs).
