Learning Experiences

Students in the psychology program frequently assist with faculty research. One example is professor Mitchell Metzger’s memory performance research, where six psychology students tested more than 200 other AU students in the cognitive psychology lab. They used spatial information to bolster memory performance. The results were then published in the Journal of Cognitive Psychology.

Another example is the grant-funded international research Associate Professor Chris Chartier is conducting. Chartier’s Psychological Science Accelerator will play a critical role in achieving more diverse samples of data for these international studies to provide reliable answers to big questions.
