Benjamin McDunn received his Ph.D. and M.S. in psychology from the Behavioral and Brain Sciences program at the University of Georgia. Prior to graduate school, he received his B.S. in Psychology from Clemson University. His specialization is in cognitive psychology, specifically the areas of visual perception and memory. His previous research has explored how visual scene memory is affected by top-down semantic knowledge, low-level perceptual distortions, encoding conditions and attention. More recently, he has conducted studies examining how the perceptual organization of objects influences working memory performance and how working memory relates to general fluid intelligence. Dr. McDunn enjoys staying up to date on new developments in learning and education research and teaching his students how to apply findings in cognitive psychology to their study techniques.
