At present, Psychology Department faculty members direct at least 10 active research programs and laboratories. Collectively, research in the Psychology Department aims to understand the mind, behavior, and mental health.
Our faculty are outstanding scholars, including several nationally and internationally recognized experts in a variety of areas. Their work is collectively advancing the field of psychological science with basic and applied research, spanning many of the major domains of psychological study, such as:
- Cognition and action control
- Language processing and word perception
- The neuroscience of learning and memory
- Social cognition and behavior
- Mood and emotion regulation
- Basic and applied organizational processes
- School-based service models
- Adult development and aging
- Dementia and mental health
- Culturally competent leadership
This ongoing departmental research has significant potential to improve our understanding of the specific cognitive mechanisms, social processes, and physiological developments that impact our daily mental lives and psychological health.
