Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience Southwest Regional Conference at Texas A&M University-San Antonio

The Psychology Program was privileged to host the 27th Annual Meeting of ARMADILLO, the Southwest Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience Society, on October 4th and 5th, 2019.  Over 100 researchers and students from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana attended and shared their research in the areas of memory, decision-making, linguistics, learning, and other topics.

Psychology faculty Dawn Weatherford and William Blake Erickson co-organized the conference and A&M-SA faculty members Cory Ross, Malin Lilley, Alan Daniel, and Mario Baldassari were among the presenters.  A&M-SA alum and current UT-SA student Angelee Rodriguez also presented work funded by Psi Chi, the Psychology Honors Society.  This year's keynote address was delivered by the award-winning researcher of mind and consciousness Nelson Cowan from the University of Missouri.  The 2020 conference will be held at the A&M system school in Commerce, TX.
