Beliefs of Black Women
December 2017, BioGals traveled to Sittee River Village assessing villagers' perception of Black women, from the US, conducting research in their community and likelihood of adopting biodigester as way of managing organic waste.
Over 50 villagers were assessed and some of the participants wore fNIRS, neuroimaging used to measure brain activity.
This video was created by Dr. Maya Trotz, associate professor at University of South Florida.
