The Seeing Lab is a 3-hour course to learn how to detect and read micro-expressions- small contractions of the facial muscles that last only tenths of a second, but give a window into what someone is feeling. Did you ever talk with someone & get the feeling that there's something more they want to say? Maybe they said they were happy, but you noticed a hint of sadness. Or maybe they said were mad, and you noticed a hint of happiness. In this course we'll use imaging software, the same kind used for training detectives and members of secret services, to do a pretest of your people-reading abilities. Later, your post-test scores will show you how much you've learned.
