Dr. Ruth Johnson is a cognitive psychologist with a background in cognitive neuroscience. Her previous research has examined the neural aspects of visual and tactile perception, as well as the components of episodic memory. Currently, Dr. Johnson is investigating the complexities of facial processing biases in attention using a change detection paradigm. In addition, she also explores educational differences in traditional and online learning modalities for both students and faculty using best practice models.
