What’s New in the Psychology Department
Brain Dissection Lab
Students in Dr. David Towers’ Introduction to Biopsychology course had the opportunity to dissect sheep brains, which are very similar to human brains. Students typically do not have this kind of opportunity until they get to graduate school. Dr. Towers and Dr. Reminger put this lab together with the assistance of several faculty in the biology and chemisty departments.
University of Illinois Springfield Assistant Professor of Psychology Sheryl Reminger studies the impact of cancer on the brain.
The impact of stereotypes on Asian Americans
Dr. Frances Shen, assistant professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois Springfield researches the impact of stereotypes on Asian Americans.

- How can I improve my changes of getting in?
- What degree do I need (M.A., Ph.D., Psy.D., or M.D.)?
- What are schools looking for in my appliation materials?
- How do I write a personal statement?
