Claxton, Georgia

Graduated From:

Georgia Southern University

Research Interests:

Alex is interested in how memory works, and in particular, how working memory changes across sensory modalities. Other interests include (in humans and/or nonhumans) abstract-concept learning, visual working memory, and physiological indexes of memory (e.g., pupil dilation, skin conductance).

Sample Work:

Daniel, T. A., Wright, A. A., & Katz, J. S. (2015). Abstract-concept learning of difference in pigeons. Animal Cognition, 1-7.

Magnotti, J. F., Goodman, A. M., Daniel, T. A., Elmore, L. C., Wright, A. A., & Katz, J. S. (2013). Visual object complexity limits pigeon short-term memory.Behavioural processes, 93, 31-38.

Bodily, K. D., Daniel, T. A., & Sturz, B. R. (2012). The roles of beaconing and dead reckoning in human virtual navigation. Learning and Motivation, 43(1), 14-23.


Outside of graduate school, Alex enjoys spending time with his wife, his dog, and his books.

Favorite Quote:

"The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day." - David Foster Wallace
