Ph.D., Michigan State University



Dr. Radvansky's research is focused on the development of mental model theory for human memory and cognition. Mental models are a person's representation of a situation that they experienced/read/heard about. Most of this research is aimed at understanding how people create, organize, store and retrieve mental models. This research is also directed at understanding how younger and older adults differ on their use of mental models.
