Welcome to the Experimental Psychology Lab
The Experimental 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.
Dr. Crystal Mata Kreitler, an associate professor, at Angelo State University in the psychology and sociology department. She is a director of the M.S. Experimental Program with a Behavioral Neuroscience Emphasis and she directs the departmental TA program. Dr. Kreitler completed her PhD and a MS degree in experimental psychology with emphasis in cognition from Texas Christian University. Dr. K was born in California and raised in Texas.
In addition to her passion for mentoring students in experimental research, Crystal enjoys volunteering for the STEM girl scouts’ program as a facilitator at their annual meetings and serving on the community Foster Care Consortium as an ASU faculty representative. Dr. Kreitler has published over 15 journal articles but feels teaching in the classroom is unmatched.
