Student Lisa Taffe, an upcoming May 2015 graduate of Stevenson University's Psychology Program, in the lab working on her research project.

Her reseach involved monitoring the hunger hormone in the brain of animals that were given doses of methamphetamine.

Students in Dr. Tulloch's Animal Behavior Class gave their presentations on their experiential learning with the Maryland SPCA. The SPCA is an organization directed towards the betterment of pet welfare and animal care.

Dr. Tulloch's Animal Behavior class had two new visits from different animals this month. The first was Bubba the miniature Vietnamese pig, belonging to students Shannon Logue and Ashley Bialiff.

Students attempted to condition Bubba to choose a certain blanket over another when placed on the floor.

The second guests were two dogs of different breeds, Zora and Canela.

The goal with this activity was for the students to observe breed differences in canine aggresssion. Both dogs were allowed to wander the room with students paying particular attention to their interactions.

 

Last week Psychology adjunct Dr. Colleen Spada welcomed guest speaker Dr. Erin Stoll to her classroom.

Dr. Stoll discussed cyber bullying, a social infliction usually predominant within younger age groups.

Dr. Stoll works at the Family Center in Ellicott City and has written and spoken extensively on the use of technology and social media outlets as tools for bullying and harassment. She regularly speaks to parents about what they can do for their children to prevent, protect, educate, and empower them.
