Jamie Newland presents at the Preeminent Undergraduate Research Experience at USF

Early this month, several undergraduate research assistants from EMaC Lab presented at the Spring 2019 PURE hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research at USF. Jamie presented preliminary results from her undergraduate honors thesis titled “Semantic Priming: Individual Differences in Automaticity”. Replicating earlier semantic priming studies and investigating the effects of individuals’ reading/language abilities. She found that readers with better comprehension (as assessed using the PIAT-R) showed less dual-task interference during a semantic categorization task, suggesting they identify the meanings of words more automatically.
