Causadias’ research and teaching focuses on the interplay of cultural and biological processes in the developmental of psychopathology and health. Working with immigrant youth, he studies how enculturation and acculturation interrelates with genetic variations to favor trajectories of risk and resilience.
Gescheider's most recent research has contributed to the identification of specific receptor systems responsible for the perception of mechanical stimuli.
He is a member of nine professional societies and has received the Pentagon Society Award for Excellence in Teaching, the National Service Award, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professorship, and is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America.
Trained in cognitive and developmental psychology, Grysman’s research focuses on the role of memory in defining the self. Specifically, he studies people’s personal narratives for events experienced in their lives, and relates these back to broader theories about how this type of memory develops, and how individual differences, such as gender or developmental status, play a role in this process.
Grysman’s most recent work has included examining people’s narratives of anticipated future events as an expansion of how memory is used to plan for the future. His planned course topics include introductory psychology, cognitive psychology and research methods in autobiographical memory.
List earned both her bachelor's degree in cognitive science and Ph.D. in psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. She received NIH National Research Service Awards for both her doctoral and post-doctoral research.
List's research has focused on understanding how we perceive and attend to visual, auditory and haptic information in our environment, for which she has employed a variety of human cognitive neuroscience techniques. Her work has been published in various journals, including Cognition, Brain, the Journal of Vision, Neuropsychologia and the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance.More about Alexandra List >>
