Dr. Kelemen has interests in several areas of memory and cognition. Much of his research has focused on individuals’ ability to monitor and control their own cognitive events. This process is known as metacognition, which is sometimes described as "what you know about what you know." Dr. Kelemen has worked on diverse projects recently, including (a) the effects of mild stimulant drugs (including caffeine and nicotine) on cognition and metacognition, (b) the reliability of event-based prospective memory (remembering to do things in the future), and (c) the relationship between metacognition and ADHD in college students.

    Psych Day will be held Thursday, April 16, 2015 in the Psychology Building Quad. Festivities include a graduate and volunteer fair, workshops, games and special speakers, beginning at 10:00 am. A buffet lunch will be offered for a small donation from 11:00 until 2:00. The keynote speaker, Dr. Collie Conoley, will present his research on Goal Focused Positive Psychotherapy at 4:00 pm in the Beach Auditorium.
