Research interests & goals:
Gwynn Morris is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Meredith College. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from North Carolina State University in 2007. Dr. Morris’ areas of interest include development and memory. In particular, her research focuses on the development of autobiographical memory in young children, the neurological correlates of autobiographical memory in young adults, and the changes in autobiographical memory across the lifespan. Her previous work has examined the role of language acquisition in the offset of childhood amnesia and the predictors of which early autobiographical memories will survive instead of fade away over time. Her current research is exploring autobiographical memory development in special populations and the use of internal states language in recent memories throughout the lifespan. She is also the faculty co-sponsor of a regional undergraduate research conference, the Carolinas Psychology Conference.
