Dr. Robinson-Riegler began teaching at UST in 1990.  He frequently teaches General Psychology, Cognition, and Research Methods in Cognition. His specialty area is memory illusions, memory and emotion, cognitive processes associated with paranormal experiences. Current projects include research into cognitive processing of attractive and unattractive faces, false memories for different types of events, and individual differences in the ability to divide attention.

He is seeking research assistants for reading and meeting to discuss background literature, development of stimulus materials, testing participants, and data analysis.

I'm originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. My wife is a faculty member in the Augsburg psychology department (Bridget Robinson-Riegler). Currently, we're working on a textbook for cognition. I'm an avid sports fan (mainly baseball and football), and also an avid Simpsons fan."

CRN: 20417 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Gregory L. Robinson-Riegler This course will provide an overview of cognitive processes, the processes that collectively comprise what is commonly termed "thinking." Topics discussed will include perception, attention, remembering, language, problem solving, reasoning, and social cognition. The course will focus on how these processes operate in everyday situations, as well as empirical (laboratory) investigations of these processes. Connections between cognitive psychology and other areas of psychology (e.g., clinical, biological) will also be discussed. Prerequisite: PSYC 111
