About Matthew Bell

Research Program
I have two primary research programs, both involving the role of stimuli in controlling behavior.  I am also involved in the experimental analysis of teaching and learning in the college classroom.

Experimental Analysis of Behavior
My research focuses on stimulus control, choice behavior, conditioned reinforcement, and persistence.  My primary goal for this research line is to understand the fundamental learning processes. [LEARNING LAB]

Memory & Aging
Working with both older adults and college-aged adults, Dr. Simone and I study environmental factors that affect remembering.  The ultimate goal is to identify strategies for successful remembering.  [MEMORY & AGING LAB]
