The latest in our ongoing lecture series, Scholar'd for Life! Join us as we welcome Professor Morton Ann Gernsbacher to present a lecture entitled "Psychological Effects of the Internet." Google the question, “How is the internet changing the way we think?,” and you will find no shortage of opinions — or fears. In this talk, UW-Madison Vilas Professor Morton Ann Gernsbacher will present empirical evidence of several ways the Internet is positively affecting fundamental psychological processes (communication, education, socializing, development, and aging). Morton Ann Gernsbacher is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Society for Experimental Psychologists, the American Psychological Association (Divisions 1, 3, and 6), the American Psychological Society, and the American Educational Research Association. She has received a Research Career Development Award and a Senior Research Fellowship from the National Institutes of Health, a Fulbright Research Scholar Award, a Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Texas at Dallas, a James McKeen Cattell Foundation Fellowship, the George A. Miller Award, a Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award, and a Professional Opportunities for Women Award from the National Science Foundation.
