Research Interests:

Arlo Clark-Foos graduated with his Ph.D. in Cognitive/Experimental Psychology from the University of Georgia in 2009. He is actively immersed in research that can be construed broadly as studying the mental representations and cognitive processes that underlie many forms of human learning and memory. Under that umbrella, he has at least four more specific programs of research. These include prospective memory, the residual effects of valence on both attention and memory, source monitoring, and theoretical issues in basic memory phenomena such as metacognition, recognition, and free recall. His work in these domains has been published in numerous journals, including Psychnomic Bulletin & Review, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, & Cognition, as well as the Journal of Memory & Language.

Teaching Interests:

Arlo Clark-Foos teaches a number of courses at the undergraduate level in the Behavioral Sciences department. His favorite courses to teach are, of course, Cognitive Psychology (PSYC 363) and Learning & Memory (PSYC 461/561) but he also loves to teach Experimental Psychology (PSYC 465) and Princples of Statistics and Experimental Design (PSYC 381). Each of the two upper-level content courses are heavily research based. That is, you will be expected to read and understand research findings related to the material for the course.
