Russ Clay Study Announced Online

September 07, 2016

Dr. Russ Clay, a psychology professor at the College of Staten Island, recently had a preview of his study announced on the EurekAlert website. The article, “Friendships, vaccines, and impressions: Upcoming studies in SPPS,” outlines some studies that will appear in Society for Personality and Social Psychology online.

Professor Clay’s study, “The behavioral immune system and attitudes about vaccines: Contamination aversion predicts more negative vaccine attitudes,” found that, “Higher feelings of disgust predict negative attitudes towards vaccines… In a pair of experiments, the connection between disgust and negative vaccine attitudes occurred in both student (study 1) and non-student (study 2) groups. The results support findings from other studies on the connections between the behavioral immune system and vaccine attitudes.”

Read the full announcement on the EurekAlert website.
