I am a developmental psychologist who studies how children learn verbs between the ages of 2-5 years, both in the US and across cultures. With a team of dedicated undergraduates, we use behavioral enactment, video, and eye tracking procedures to test how children may use information they can discover by comparing multiple events to each other to learn new verbs.
Professor Carolyn Becker is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the implementation of scientifically supported interventions in clinical and real world settings. Her primary areas of research include body image, eating disorders, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
I am foremost a cognitive psychologist who happens to investigate the cognitive causes, correlates, and consequences of emotional disorders. My interest in emotional disorders developed as a consequence of using depression as a special set of circumstances for testing more general principles of memory. What seems to happen to many investigators happened to me: A seemingly transitory puzzle became a career.
