Undergraduate Research in Psychology

Undergraduates students working in world renowned research groups in the School have contributed to research that has been presented at national and international conferences, and published in leading scholarly journals. For example:

• Undergraduate Zane Blanton’s research with Professor Eric Schumacher on brain plasticity in patients with macular degeneration was presented at the Society for Neuroscience conference held in Washington, D.C.

Rachel Newsome appeared as a coauthor with Professor Audrey Duarte on the paper “The Effects of Aging on ERP Correlates of Source Recollection for Self-referential Information” published in the journal Brain Research.

• In addition to undergraduate research conducted at Georgia Tech on the design of symbols used in warning signs with Professors Wendy Rogers and Dan Fisk, Daniel Shorr was selected as a Fulbright Scholar and participated in a research experience at Kyoto University in Japan.
