Summary of Psychology Department Research, Fall 2015 Semester

Students and faculty in the Ashland University Psychology Department were busy during the Fall 2015 semester gathering data for a variety of research projects.  Sixteen student and faculty researchers completed 15 different studies this semester, with 11 of those studies being traditional laboratory studies and 4  being online studies.  Student participants earned 1,237 credits by participating in research, and as each credit amounts to 15 minutes of research participation, the department gathered 309 continuous hours of data this semester.  Many of these research projects have been submitted for presentation at the annual meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association this spring in Chicago, while others have been included in manuscripts that have been submitted for publication.  All in all, it was another productive and fruitful semester for both our students and faculty alike!
