Vietnam Veterans Help Neuroscientists Map Emotional Intelligence in the Brain

Cognitive neuroscientist Aron Barbey explores the link between general and emotional intelligence by studying Vietnam veterans with focal brain injuries. Using CT scanners and behavioral testing, Barbey hopes to create a detailed map of the brain regions that play an important role in general and emotional intellectual functioning. Barbey is an Assistant Professor in the departments of Speech and Hearing Science and Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a faculty member in the Beckman Institute's Cognitive Neuroscience Group.
