First year graduate student Andrew Graves gives presentation on thesis plans

First year graduate student Andrew Graves gave a presentation on his thesis plans on March 25th, entitled "Can conscious expectancy and physiological anticipation to the same event operate in opposite directions in humans?" According to Andrew, there are two proposed mechanisms of learning in humans- one conscious and one purely physiological. While most learning research has focused on conscious mechanisms, Andrew hopes to use his thesis to find evidence of automatic or “link based” learning in humans. Andrew is mentored by Dr. Ken Steele.
