2017 Walk-In Conference Registration
STAR-ND will host a Walk-In Conference on January 19, 2017, at McKenna Hall!

This event provides an opportunity for colleagues from around our division to present sessions and facilitate discussions so we may share resources, best practices, and challenges of our work in student affairs. The conference is meant to create dialogue across departments and encourage innovative methods for engaging our students. Attendees will mainly be from the Division of Student Affairs, but we may also have attendees from Saint Mary's, Holy Cross, and other campus collaborators.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jessica Payne
Dr. Jessica Payne is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and runs the Sleep, Stress, and Memory Lab at Notre Dame. Her research focuses on how sleep and stress influence human memory and psychological function.

After new information is encoded into memory, it continues to be processed and transformed by a process known as consolidation. This process solidifies memories, making them resistant to interference and decay, but emerging evidence suggests that it can also change memories in ways that make them more useful and adaptive. The questions driving this line of research are, “What happens to memories over time?” and “What are the mechanisms underlying memory solidification and memory change?” Dr. Payne uses two powerful tools to probe memory - sleep and stress. Both provide important mediums for targeting the consolidation process in humans. Dr. Payne combines behavioral, pharmacological and cognitive neuroscientific (EEG, fMRI) approaches to investigate these questions.

Another line of research examines important clinical questions, including how disturbances in sleep and stress influence memory consolidation in individuals with major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders such as PTSD, and how this, in turn, influences psychological functioning.

Dr. Payne holds a Ph.D. in psychology and cognitive neuroscience from the University of Arizona, an M.A. in experimental psychology from Mount Holyoke College, and a B.A. in psychology from the University of San Diego.
