Alexandra Morrison, B.A.
Alexandra recently published a review paper entitled "Does Working Memory Training Work? The Promise and Challenges of Enhancing Cognition by Training Working Memory" with Dr. Jason Chein in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. To read the article, click here.
Alexandra Morrison is a fourth year graduate student and a member of Jason Chein’s Neurocognition Lab. Broadly, she studies working memory capacity and factors that impact the size of working memory capacity (e.g., cognitive training, strategy use). Two questions encompass her current research interests. First, can working memory training increase working memory capacity and also benefit other areas of cognition? Second, how does strategy contribute to the behavioral and neural characteristics of working memory? She is currently collecting data for her dissertation, an fMRI study comparing individuals’ memory strategies in an effort to inform debates in the memory literature.
