Denison students co-author neuroscience articles
Nestor Matthews, Associate Professor of Psychology, presented “Getting Ahead with TED-Ed” as a poster at the National Institute for the Teaching of Psychology in January 2016. Also in January 2016, he published an article entitled “Simultaneity and Temporal Order Judgments Exhibit Distinct Reaction Times and Training Effects” in the PLOS ONE, with co-authors Dr. Rebecca Achtman (Denison Psychology), Rachel Fenton (’14) and Brynn FitzGerald (’16).
In addition, Matthews and Andrew Clement (’13) published an article entitled “The Whole Is Faster Than Its Parts: Evidence for Temporally Independent Attention to Distinct Spatial Locations” in the journal Attention, Perception & Psychophysics.
Matthews' research addresses issues in human vision and audition, with an emphasis on how these sensory systems improve with training.
