Ben Burkett '11

Fall/Spring. Psy 495/496. Senior capstone looking at the effect of sleep on strategies used by humans in virtual navigation.

 

Robert John Karry Jr. '11

Fall/Spring. Psy 495/496. Senior capstone testing if people who have extensive experience with meditation adopt different strategies during virtual navigation.

 

Steven Aposotlidis '12
Romeo Amoa'13
