UCSB GRITtalks: Can Acetaminophen Influence How We Perceive Other People?

The event is free, but a reservation is recommended in order to guarantee a seat.

The popular over-the-counter-medication, acetaminophen, is generally used to reduce fever and pain.  However, a growing body of research suggests that the drug has broader psychological effects.  The presentation discusses Kyle Ratner’s research examining the effects of acetaminophen on social group biases in person perception. He ends by suggesting that more research is necessary to fully characterize the effects of widely used drugs on social behavior and society.
