Fight, Flight, or Foresight

February 18, 2020

For some people with severe autism, aggressive behavior is common. Oftentimes they can’t communicate, so when they’re stressed, they either fight or flee. But what if there were a device that could predict those outbursts by monitoring physiological changes? That way, their bodies could speak for themselves. 

In this episode, we talk to Matthew Goodwin (associate professor of behavioral science and personal health informatics).
