This summer, several Furman students have been preoccupied by stress, anxiety, trauma and fear – from an academic perspective, at least. The 15th annual Psychology and Neuroscience Summer Research Conference on July 26 highlighted studies on those topics and others, including memory, rest, taste and health behaviors. In two morning poster sessions in Plyler Hall, students displayed projects such as “Predator Odor Fear Conditioning Model of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Rats and Mice” and “Using Latent Class Analysis to Examine Behavior Patterns Among First-Year College Students.” Attendees of an afternoon session saw presentations like “Resting State EEG Correlates of Memory Consolidation in ADHD” and “The Impact of Taste Experience During Early Development on Latent Taste and Neural Processing.” Finally, students and faculty wrapped the afternoon up with the ultimate brain food: ice cream sundaes.
