James Briggs

I received my Ph.D. in experimental psychology (biopsychology) from Kent State University. I teach statistics, research methods, directed research and learning processes.

My research focuses on using animal models for the experimental analysis of memory and amnesia, which someday may provide more effective treatments for problems such as psychological trauma.
