New Article by Dr. McLennan and His Former Students!

Conor McLennan, professor and chair in the Department of Psychology, and three of his former students recently had an article published. Their paper, entitled “Masculine harps and feminine horns: Timbre and pitch level influence gender ratings of musical instruments” was published in the journal Psychology of Music. https://doi.org/10.1177/0305735617734629

The research reported in their paper represents portions of Lisa Stronsick’s undergraduate honors thesis. Ms. Stronsick, the first author on this paper, earned her B.A. in psychology (with a minor in business) (2017) and graduated with honors. Samantha Tuft and Sara Incera both earned their Ph.D. degrees in Adult Development and Aging from CSU’s Department of Psychology (2018 & 2016, respectively).

Congratulations to Ms. Stronsick and Drs. Tuft, Incera, and McLennan!
