Research Interests

A cognitive psychologist by training, my research interests fall in the general area of nonverbal cognition with specific projects focused on: (a) human aging and memory, (b) long-term memory for faces, (c) perception of faces, (d) eyewitness memory, and (e) music cognition. My current NSF grant (with Jean Searcy and Amina Memon) supports a project on eyewitness testimony by young and old adults and has a combined theoretical and applied orientation. New research initiatives include neuroimaging of face recognition and relations of normal and pathological aging of human memory.

PERSONAL STATEMENT

Since completing my Ph.D. (Yale, 1975), my research and scholarly activities have focused on: (a) theoretical and applied aspects of human perception and memory for complex, multi-faceted objects and events including human faces, visual scenes, and melodies, (b) normal and pathological aging of perception and memory, and (c) the role of affect in perception and memory. My most recent articles concern the brain processes involved in perception and recognition of faces, reliability of eyewitness testimony in old age, and aging memory for faces and music.

These various strands of my research are tightly intertwined. For example, a recent project on aging and eyewitness identification was supported by the National Science Foundation examined how age-related deficits in laboratory tasks of nonverbal memory may extend to the real-world task of identifying suspected perpetrators of crimes in the lineup situation, and whether tests of neuropsychological dysfunction can be used to distinguish unreliable eyewitnesses. Another project supported by the National Institute on Aging, has examined how expertise might moderate age-related declines in cognitive function, taking music as a model domain in which expertise (training) as well as age of participants both can be examined. Another project is focused on how piecemeal features and configural information contribute to correct and false recognition of faces. This work uses a variety of behavioral paradigms and, most recently, brain-mapping (SPECT, fMRI) techniques in conjunction with neural network modelling. This work involves collaborations with a number of individuals, including Herve Abdi, James Jerger, and, more recently, Dr. M. Devous, Sr., of U.T. Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.

My teaching interests include Introductory Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Science, Learning and Memory, Human Aging and Cognition and Behavioral Research Methods. I am an active contributor to the academic community, having recently served as Associate Dean of the School of Human Development and Dean of Graduate Studies and Research at U. T. Dallas. I was recently elected chair of the University of Texas System Faculty Advisory Council, an active group of faculty from all U.T. System components who advice the Chancellor and Board of Regents on matters pertaining faculty quality, faculty governance, academic affairs and health affairs.
