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.
