Despite all of the information that exists to encourage students to attend and do well in college, this is the first research-based guide that directly advises first- and second-year college students. With a focus on the needs and interests of stu...
A unique and important resource, full of critical practical knowledge and technical details made readily accessible.
A comprehensive and engaging guide to EEG methods in social neuroscience; Dickter and Kiefabber offer practical details for conducting EEG research in a social/personality lab, with a broad perspective on how neuroscience can inform psychology. This is a unique and invaluable resource—a must-have for scientists interested in the social brain.
Cheryl L. Dickter is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology and a Faculty Affiliate of the Neuroscience Program at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, USA. She received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of North Carolina in 2006. Her research uses a social cognitive neuroscience approach to examine how individuals perceive members of different social groups, and how these perceptions differ based on contextual information such as stereotypes. Dr. Dickter also examines how the cognitive processes involved in the processing of drug-related stimuli are affected by exposure, craving, and motivation. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Paul D. Kieffaber is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology and a Faculty Affiliate of the Neuroscience Program and the Department of Applied Science at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, USA. He received a dual-degree Ph.D. in Psychology and Cognitive Science from Indiana University-Bloomington in 2006. Dr. Kieffabers research is focused on the psychophysiology of attention and cognitive control. His research aims to develop models of the component cognitive processes inherent to constructs like attention, task-set, and cognitive control and to improve our understanding about the mechanisms of cognitive dysfunction in psychopathology.
