We can often tell how someone is feeling by looking at their facial expressions, but emotion is more than skin deep.

Come and visit our Me, Human stand and see yourself through the lens of a thermal imaging camera. Professor Gilly Forrester (University of Sussex), Dr Georgina Donati (University of Oxford) and Professor Ben Garrod (University of East Anglia) are using thermal-infrared imaging to better understand stress and arousal in humans and our non-human great ape cousins.

The Great Ape Wellbeing Research Programme aims to increase our understanding of great ape psychological states, improve wellbeing for apes in captivity and make positive contributions to great ape wild release and reintroduction conservation efforts.
