Andrew Gallup Presents at International and National Conferences

Andrew Gallup of the Psychology Department recently delivered two research presentations in Boston (November 17-19). Both presentations were based on research conducted at SUNY Oneonta, and each included at least one psychology undergraduate co-author. The first presentation was a talk delivered at the International Conference on Comparative Cognition. This talk was entitled “The influence of oxytocin on contagious yawning in budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus)” and was co-authored by Elaine Herron and Janine Militello (current and former psychology majors). The second presentation was a poster delivered at the 57th annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society. This poster was entitled “Chewing gum diminishes contagious yawning” and was co-authored by Kaleigh Engert (former psychology major).
