Sarah Krivan studied the communicative functions of adult emotional tears. By analysing participants' neurological activity, she found that tears elicit distinct neural responses that facilitate emotion understanding. Sarah's research shed new light on a uniquely human phenomenon which provides insight into pro-social empathic behaviour in humans.
