Andy Morgan '04 and Professor Johnson
Morgan '04 and Johnson Study Lip Reading
Andy Morgan ’04, a psychology major, has devoted 10 weeks of his summer vacation to science research under the direction of Visiting Instructor of Psychology Jennifer Johnson. Morgan has been studying the correlation between lip reading and dynamic spatial reasoning. It is hypothesized that the large discrepancy in an individual’s ability to lip read is related to one’s ability to see multiple things happen at once, or to be able to spatially reason. At this point in the process, Morgan is generating stimuli and possible tests that could be run to prove the theory. The ultimate goal of his research is to find a way to teach people to dynamically spatially reason, which would then have an impact on their ability to lip read. Morgan is highly interested in this research and hopes to be able to continue working on the project into the fall, when tests would actually be run. More ...

Ava Bromberg '02
Chemistry and Ceramics Combine in Summer Research Project
In the summer of 2001, Ava Bromberg '02, with the support of an Emerson Grant, completed a project titled "Glaze Chemistry: Where Art Melts with Science, an Interdisciplinary Exploration." Working with Professor Robert Palusky from the art department and Associate Professor Karen Brewer from chemistry, Bromberg performed a time-consuming and somewhat tedious battery of tests on hundreds of ceramic tiles. In an attempt to find viable substitutes for commonly used glazes that are becoming increasingly scarce, she used hundreds of test glazes. In researching possible substitutes for these glazes, Bromberg varied temperatures and materials as she fired thousands of test tiles. She examined the chemical compositon of the glazes in conjunction with the structure and performance of the inorganic oxides, essential for providing color. More ...
Astrid Helfant, Visiting Instructor of Biology
Helfant Publishes Article in Current Genetics
Current Genetics recently published an article by Visiting Instructor of Biology Astrid H. Helfant titled, "Composition of the Spindle Pole Body of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the Proteins Involved in its Duplication." In her review paper, Helfant focuses on the centrosome in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, referred to as the spindle pole body (SPB). The centrosome is an organelle found in fungi (including yeast) and in most animal cells and is known to play a key role in maintaining the genomic stability of the cell. Upon its duplication, the centrosome forms a bipolar spindle responsible for separating the genomic DNA of a dividing cell. More ...
