Welcome to the Kreitler Cognitive Lab
The Cognitive lab, established in 2011, is located in the Academic building on the Angelo State University campus in room 215 and is managed by Dr. Crystal Kreitler. The lab research currently explores, among other things, the use of cognitive tools to improve decision making, personality, memory, and we examine how culture and ethical frameworks play a role in decision making. Students interested in participating in any of the current experiments as a volunteer or to earn extra credit for a class can sign up on SONA.
