Research Interest Groups

Research Topics in Brain, Cognitive, and Developmental Psychology

Graduate students and faculty from the Brain, Cognitive, and Developmental Science program meet weekly. The meetings include presentations of graduate and faculty research, outside speakers from other departments, meetings with relevant colloquium speakers, and occasionally critiques of posters and practice talks to be given to professional societies. For more information, contact Dr. Joseph Johnson

Emotion Research Group

The emotion research group is open to faculty and graduate students whose research interests include emotion, including all areas of the Department of Psychology and from other departments. The emotion research group meets to discuss the research of members and articles of general interest. Topics of discussion are set by members on a rotating basis. Our goal is to share expertise, support the research of members, and promote collaboration among diverse researchers with shared interests in emotion. For more information, contact Dr. Joshua Magee

Social Psychology Research Interest Group (SPRIG)

The Social Psychology Research Interest Group meets weekly on Fridays for presentations and discussions of the current research of students and faculty. Presentations include all stages of the research process; some talks focus on ideas, some on incoming or recently collected data, and some on a sequence of studies that is nearing publication. We also discuss topics related to professional issues, such as preparing for the academic job market. If you are interested in upcoming meetings or if you are interested in presenting, contact Dr. Heather Claypool
