Eighteen psychology and neuroscience majors, including one research scholar, will present their senior capstone projects from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 11 in Hoyt Science Resources Center rooms 150, 152 and 166.

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.

Capstone is a course that provides an opportunity for students to conduct in-depth research in their major. After completing their research project proposed during the spring semester of the junior year, the psychology and neuroscience students will present their research findings and discuss the implications of their work.

“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.”
