Dr. Ozubko's research examines the cognitive and neuropsychological properties of human memory. Dr. Ozubko uses both experimental and neuroimaging techniques to investigate episodic and spatial memory. As for episodic memory, much of his research focuses on distinctiveness effects in memory, the influence of semantics on memory, and properties of forgetting over time. For spatial memory, Dr. Ozubko investigates the neuropsychological consequences of learning and navigating in new and familiar environments. His lab uses techniques ranging from classic cognitive experimental paradigms to mathematical models and virtual reality headsets.

Writing Seminar is a course focusing on a specific topic while emphasizing writing practice and instruction, potentially taught by any member of the College faculty. Because this is primarily a course in writing, reading assignments will be briefer than in traditional topic courses, and students will prove their understanding of the subject matter through writing compositions rather than taking examinations.
PSYC 305: Top: Functional Neuroimaging
A selected-topic course focused on applied data management and analysis. Students will learn to apply qualitative and/or quantitative data collection, management and/or analysis skills.
