Our first senior honors student

Congratulations to Caitlin Ward, who successfully defended her senior honors project this afternoon. Caitlin is majoring in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology at Wash U and was the first student to join my lab. In her honors project, she conducted an experiment to see whether listening to acoustically-challenging stories has any impact on our ability to remember these stories later. Caitlin updated and standardized a large set of Aesop's Fables, designed her experiment, and collected data from a group of undergraduates. The work is ongoing, and I look forward to sharing results sometime in the coming months. Great job Caitlin!
