Not too long ago, relationships and dates would largely be limited to the people you encountered in real-life, but with the advent of online dating, all of that has changed.

As the stimuli are essentially so simple, it is relatively straightforward to manipulate each image, to see how the changing of each parameter affects the outcome — if the participant desires the person in the image, or not. EEG an ABM B-Alert X10 Eye tracking with a Tobii X Behavioral measures accepting or rejecting the photos With this approach they were able to extract information about brain activity while the participants looked, and reacted to the images. One of the crucial pieces of information that they used was a measure of prefrontal asymmetry — a recording of brain activity that relates to the difference in activity between the two frontal lobes. By combining these measures, the researchers were able to determine the brain activity of participants in a moment-to-moment basis, and thus tie this to the images that the participants saw.

When we put pen to paper, we realized they’re even more similar than we initially thought. Remember your uniform When an NFL team takes the field, their uniforms are clean and pressed and tucked in. When you go out on a date, you want to look your best. Avoid exaggerating about your role at work or your financial situation. It will come back to bite you down the road.
