It is true that social networking has been a powerful force for good; however, these sites have also enabled sharing and connectivity for more nefarious purposes. Specifically, the Internet connects people in ways that can enable and amplify the destructive power of eating disorders (EDs). Some pro-ED communities have emerged that support users' choices of self-harm as a reasonable lifestyle alternative. These communities are not only dangerous for those with EDs but also for potential contagious effects of these communities on those who don't already have these behaviors.
People with severe motor disabilities such as ALS may not be able to move their facial muscles to communicate. This study is examining the salient features of facial expressions in order to create "emotional prosthetics" - ways for people with disabilities to express emotion. The resulting prosthetics will be controlled by voluntary and involuntary brain signals.

Once the channel is loaded in Argon, a standards-based Augmented Reality (AR) web browser developed by the Augmented Environments Lab. The tour gives information to users through text, pictures and videos.
