Human Development and Family Sciences graduate student Brittany Wright presents a talk titled "Sex and Stress: Physiological Evidence of Too Much (and Too Little) of a Good Thing" as part of the ongoing Department of Human Development and Family Sciences colloquia.
Wright received her M.S. in experimental psychology from Mississippi State University. Her research interests include studying the transitions within nonmarital romantic relationships and the factors that enhance or weaken relationship development. She also studies how these relationship transitions can influence one's mental and physical health. Most recently, she has begun to explore the effects of sexual behaviors on cortisol responses within the context of passionate love.
