Could EPPP Success be Determined by the Words You Say?

EPPP success starts before you open your books and begin studying. Like ancient artifacts can help us rebuild cities, figments of human thought and speech might be able to predict the future of our mental health. Is it possible, then, that preparing for the EPPP encompasses much more than actual studying?

Neuroscientist Mariano Sigman presents a Ted Talk called “Your words may predict your future mental health.” By creating an algorithm to explore the roots of human introspection, and by testing that algorithm in a study on how a group of young people’s speech predicts psychosis, Sigman theorizes that our words today can give us insight on where our minds will be later.
