About Paula T Hertel

I am foremost a cognitive psychologist who happens to investigate the cognitive causes, correlates, and consequences of emotional disorders. My interest in emotional disorders developed as a consequence of using depression as a special set of circumstances for testing more general principles of memory. What seems to happen to many investigators happened to me: A seemingly transitory puzzle became a career.
My very active laboratory thrives on the hard work of undergraduates, many of whom subsequently earn terminal degrees in psychology, neuroscience, and related fields.
