Research is an essential part of the Department of Psychology. Currently there are many different kinds of research studies being conducted in our department, on such topics as cognition, social behavior, color perception, spatial relations, and learning and memory. The advancement of psychology depends on research requiring the participation of investigators, research assistants, and human subjects participants. The Department of Psychology at Colorado State University provides many opportunities for individuals to become involved in the research process.
