Kovack-Lesh, two alumnae contribute to article published in journal

Professor of Psychology Kristine A. Kovack-Lesh had an article published this summer with Ripon College alumnae and other collaborators. “Inconsistent flanker congruency effects across stimulus types and age groups: A cautionary tale” was published in the journal “Behavior Research Methods.”

“The flanker task is a common measure of selective attention and response competition across populations, age groups, and experiential contexts,” the abstract states. “Adapting it for different uses often involves changing methodological features that are rarely empirically compared with the previous design. This paper presents an example of how typical methodological changes can differentially elicit congruency effects across age groups.”

Kovack-Lesh’s collaborators included Chelsea Grahn Andrews ’15 of Madison, Wisconsin, who majored in psychobiology at Ripon and received a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Rebecca Leuenberger ’19 of Racine, Wisconsin, who majored in psychobiology at Ripon and received a degree in nursing from Rush University. Data included in this publication were collected when Chelsea was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Rebecca was at Ripon College.
