Biopsychologist Andrew Gallup, an assistant professor of psychology at SUNY Oneonta, is investigating how a variety of factors—including social influence, status, in-group affiliation and oxytocin levels—influence contagious yawning in humans within a laboratory setting. Here, two of Gallup’s student research assistants, Allyson Church and Elaine Herron, run a practice test in the psychology lab in Fitzelle Hall. Gallup has conducted several studies on contagious yawning in human and animal populations and was the first to demonstrate that contagious yawning occurs between members of a bird species.<br />
