trump__clintonToday is election day! To help celebrate (or commiserate), Bert Bakker, along with Gijs Schumacher (UvA, political science) and Matthijs Rooduijn (Utrecht University), will set-up a physiological lab during the President’s Night in the Melkweg in Amsterdam (see link here). Bert and colleagues will be measuring visitors “gut feelings” (i.e., arousal) towards Clinton and Trump.

Also, last week Bert’s research on populism as well as physiological responses to political communication was featured on the “Kennis van Nu” show. You can see the show here.
