Oct. 24, 2014

Quoted are Jim R. Sliwinski, a doctoral student in the department of psychology and neuroscience in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences; and Gary Elkins, Ph.D., director of Baylor’s Mind-Body Medicine Research Laboratory and a professor of psychology and neuroscience. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, covers faculty and research in psychology and neuroscience and pitched this research to national media.)
