Sara Gallant receives travel award to present at Psychonomics

Sara Gallant received ‘The Psychonomic Society and Women in Cognitive Science Travel and Networking Award for Junior Scientists’ to attend Psychonomics and present her poster reporting on the influence of arousal on suppression of distraction in younger and older adults. Older adults were more likely to remember task-irrelevant taboo words but showed less impact of these words on suppression of the immediately preceding word than did younger adults – an interesting double impact of impaired suppression.
