Nick Scicolone UB 36237809 Psychology 101 Research essay 1. Hypothesis: In this article is talks about the experiment with children and how being exposed to terrorism effects how they feel. The hypothesis is that children who have been exposed have a much more broad sense of how someone’s facial expressions relate to someone’s feelings. 2. Participants: In the experiment the experimenter gathered 203 children from the town of Beslan, Russia: 101 children who survived the 3-day school siege (exposed group), and 102 children who were not in the school during the attack because they were late or absent that day. 3. Results: In the experiment it turned out that the children who were involved in the siege were much more aware about facial expressions. They were able to pick out facial expressions especially those of fear and anger. I feel this is related to the terrorists and how their facial expressions related to the children’s knowledge of this.
