WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ - Monmouth University Psychology major Miranda Bobrowski of Perth Amboy, NJ, received the Psi Chi best poster award at the 82nd annual  meeting of the Eastern Psychological Association held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Cambridge, MA., March 10-13.  Ms. Bobrowski’s winning poster “The Effect of Self-Expansion on Effort” was co-presented with Professor Gary W. Lewandowski and Brent A. Mattingly from Ashland University.    Her poster examined how self-expansion influences the amount of effort produced by individuals to solve a cognitive task.  Ms. Bobrowski won the Psi Chi Regional Research Award for this presentation.

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology.

Dr. Janice Stapley, chair of the Department of Psychology, presented two posters “Gender differences in preferences for communication technologies” with Dr. Michele Van Volkom;  and “Emotional memories of undergraduate students who want to be therapists”  co-presented with Keith Gissubel, Red Bank Catholic High School and Red Bank Catholic students Angela Delguercio, Maya Deykerhoff, Arianna Igneri, and Alexandra Palazzo.  The high school students are part of a special program in which AP Psychology students do research internships at Monmouth University.

Monmouth University was very well represented at the meeting, with Professor Jack Demarest presenting a paper “Gender differences in spying on a mate” and a poster session with recent Monmouth University Psychology graduate Ian Cohen.  Emma Higgins also gave a paper on “The sunk-cost fallacy in relationships: throwing good investments after bad”  that was co-authored with Associate Professor Gary W. Lewandowski. Psychology majors Emily Gately, Caryn Dambra, Stephanie Kocsik, Jackie Abate and May 2010 Psychology graduate Barbara Fulmer also presented posters.
