Neil Schmitzer-Torbert
Assistant Professor
Department of Psychology
Wabash College


My main training is in behavioral/cognitive neuroscience, which deals generally with the question: "How does our brain produce all of our thoughts, feelings, behavior, etc.?" My own research focuses specifically on memory: How do we create and use new memories in the brain?



My goals in the Behavior and Memory Lab is to provide students the opportunity to participate in research on the biology of memory that I am conducting at Wabash College. Students can participate in the lab in several ways (see the Projects page for brief descriptions of ongoing projects, and the People page for examples of past student work).

For more information about how to get involved, feel free to stop by my office in Baxter Hall, or to contact me via email.
