Andrea N Eslick, Graduate Student    Edit

Andrea N Eslick

Research Summary:
My research investigates how individuals tell stories about their past, and how different situational factors contribute to the memorial consequences of these retellings. I am specifically interested in the underlying cognitive mechanisms of retellings. My interests also include false memories (especially using the DRM false memory paradigm), and educational applications of memory research (such as the benefits and negative consequences of test taking).
