The Science of Gratitude Thanks to a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, UC Davis now has $5.6 million more to better understand the science of gratitude.  Also known as positive psychology, the science of gratitude tries to understand how gratitude influences a person's mental health and a society's well-being.  It is also one of psychology's fastest growing fields.  We'll speak with UC Davis psychology professor, Robert Emmons, who has written three books on gratitude and has an active role in the project "Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude," which includes researchers from multiple schools in California and elsewhere.
