Psychology Student Presents at Conference

Dan Whitacre, a junior psychology major, presented at the 30th Annual Ohio Undergraduate Psychology Research Conference recently held at Lorain Community College.  The research, co-authored by Derek Baker with Drs. Ickes and Chartier serving as faculty sponsors, was titled “The Effect of Color on Athletic Performance.” The study explored whether or not the color of a golf putter impacted performance on a putting task.  Subjective ratings of emotional calmness were also analyzed.  Congratulations, Dan!
