Student Involvement:

 

 

Students in our lab have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the research process, from research idea development, to running participants, to data analysis and presentation of findings. The lab follows a "junior-senior" student leadership model, whereby students who have been involved in the lab for multiple semesters take on a more senior role in terms of level of responsibility (e.g., training new lab members, presenting at conferences, possibly developing their own projects). For this reason, students are encouraged to remain involved in the lab for more than one semester, receiving from 1-6 credit hours for their involvement via the Psyc 3950 (Research in Psychology) course. Lab meetings are generally held on Friday afternoons. Contact Dr. Scott (vann.scott@armstrong.edu) or Dr. Wolfe (wendy.wolfe@armstrong.edu) if you are interested in the lab.
