Janet M Gibson
As a cognitive psychologist, Professor Gibson’s research focuses on executive functions (flexibility, updating, and managing resources) and on implicit memory (the influence of past experience that facilitates or biases current performance in the absence of conscious recollection). She explores these areas in the context of aging and problem solving. In addition, Professor Gibson studies the psychology of humor and wrote a textbook for undergraduates to highlight the extensive humor research being done by psychologists. Her empirical research on humor focuses on cognition, fluency, and creativity.
