Nineteen psychology and neuroscience majors, including three honors students, will present their senior capstone projects from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 in Hoyt Science Resource Center rooms 150, 152 and 166.

Capstone is a course that provides an opportunity for students to evaluate the strengths and limitations of their major field. After starting their capstone projects in the spring semester of their junior year, the psychology and neuroscience students will present their data on campus and possibly later at appropriate regional or national conferences.

Faculty advisors for the capstone projects are: Dr. Deanne Buffalari, assistant professor; Dr. Mandy Medvin, professor and coordinator of the program; Dr. Sherri Pataki, associate professor; Dr. Jessica Rhodes, assistant professor; and Dr. Sandra Webster, professor.

“I believe this opportunity to conduct undergraduate research with faculty is one of the greatest strengths of our program,” says Pataki. “This experience provides great preparation for graduate school and related careers, and our alumni often reflect back on how valuable this experience was to them following their graduation from Westminster.”
