Skipper Awarded NSF Grant

Assistant Professor of Psychology Jeremy Skipper has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to be used for upgrading lab equipment. The equipment is needed for a project to develop a procedure capable of analyzing brain data resulting from naturalistic stimuli for application to 4-D EEG data.  More ...

Sarah Kane '12 and Amanda O'Brien '13
Disproving the Old Model of Language

Language is undoubtedly a fundamental aspect of many human interactions. For this reason, the study of language serves a vital purpose in neuroscience, medicine, and even everyday life. Sarah Kane ’12 and Amanda O’Brien ’13 are spending their summer researching language and the brain under Assistant Professor of Psychology Jeremy Skipper. The group is working to disprove the classical model of language processing and to discover more about how language is processed in the human brain.  More ...

Sam Briggs '12
Briggs ’12 Searches for Meaning in Music with Neuroscience

Previous research has shown music to be a powerful tool in shaping mood, memory, and perspective. Yet many neuroscientists consider music to be too abstract and therefore incapable of providing the concrete details that assist in real-world processing. Sam Briggs ’12 hopes to challenge this perspective with his summer research. Briggs will work with Assistant Professor of Psychology Jeremy Skipper to examine some effects of music for his project, “Re-singing.”  More ...
