Welcome to Psychology at Georgia Tech.
Welcome to the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech. As you roam our webpage, you’ll notice that psychology at GaTech is rather unique in a number of ways. You already know that we are embedded in one of the leading science and engineering institutions of higher education in the world. Unlike many of our peers, our home college is the College of Science, which also houses the likes of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Math. You’ll see we have a structure of 5 programs which include Industrial Organizational, Cognition and Brain Science, Cognitive Aging, Quantitative and Engineering Psychology that help us manage the research efforts and provide focused training to our graduate students, but I can tell you that all of the faculty move easily between areas. Finally, you may notice that we are small, intentionally. It allows us to focus our research and our training in a way that has made us exceptional.
I hope you enjoy visiting us virtually, and hopefully someday in person. The Faculty, Grad Students, Undergraduates, and Staff are eager to meet you.

News and Notes
Multielement Episodic Encoding in Young and Older AdultsTaylor James, M. Natasha Rajah, and Audrey DuarteMany studies have investigated how age affects binding of single associations into memory but episodic memories in the real world are composed of multiple elements (objects, scenes, people). It isn't clear how aging impacts one's ability to integrate more realistic episodic events. In this imaging study, she finds that older adults are less able than young adults to integrate episodic elements together into a single, cohesive memory potentially because they bring more personally relevant details to their encoding experience that interfere with their ability to integrate and accurately retrieve the episode.
