Barbara A. Spellman
Since 2008, I have also held a half-time appointment at the Law School. (Here is my law info.)
Broadly defined, my research focuses on higher order cognition; in particular I am interested in analogical, causal, and inductive reasoning; inhibition in memory; metamemory; and, increasingly, in what psychology can offer the legal system.
Students who want to work with me should have serious backgrounds in law; a J.D. is best but other experience might suffice.
If you want to learn more about me than you can possibly want to know, you can take a look at my vita.
