University Continues to Receive Attention for Student Research by National Media

Today Show story mentions research by Wheeling Jesuit students and faculty

March, 11, 2008 -- Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, Associate Professor of Psychology, and his student research team, continue to receive national and international attention for interesting hypotheses and findings. Already cited for results of tests involving the effects of spearmint, cinnamon, and caffeine on behavior, and the cognitive-enhancing qualities of dark chocolate, Dr. Raudenbush and his team have become the darlings of office dwellers and beltway commuters and they have demonstrated easy ways to mitigate road rage, enhance concentration, improve memory, and now, to lose weight by consuming peppermint.

Dr. Raudenbush and his team found that people ate about 2500 fewer calories over the course of a week, which equates to a little less than one pound of weight loss each week. To view the newsclip, click here.
