Geoffrey O’Shea presents memory research at psychology annual meeting

Geoffrey O’Shea, Psychology Department, presented a poster of his memory research at the 30th annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science (APS) in San Francisco, California from May 24-27. The poster, titled “Memory Consolidation and Mood in an Implicit Sequence Learning Task,” reports results indicating that a higher quality of sleep and more positive mood can enhance non-conscious memory processes for a complex pattern of serially-ordered information. The co-authors on this research poster included five former SUNY-Oneonta students: Kyle Madden, Michelle Spencer, Steven Doolittle, Lexington Swartwood, and Michael Jones.
