Congratulations to Myranda Gormley, one of only eight winners of the Association for Psychological Science Student Grant Competition! Myranda is a third-year undergraduate Neuroscience student and research assistant in Dr. Susan Courtney’s lab. With faculty researcher, Dr. Leon Gmeindl, she will be investigating the effects of psychological stress on component processes of working memory—such as maintenance and manipulation—as a function of individuals’ working memory capacity. She hopes to refine models of working memory so that they better account for individual differences in the effects of stress/anxiety on cognition and performance which may contribute to the development of better evaluation metrics and more sophisticated performance-enhancement regimens. The grant will fund compensation of participants and task materials.
