The 2023 Undergraduate Poster Session was held on Friday, March 24 at the Ohio Union. This annual event provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to share their research with the Cognitive Science community at Ohio State and interact with faculty and students from across the University who are also working on questions related to human cognition, including learning, memory, perception, language, and decision making, from behavioral, applied, computational modeling, and cognitive neuroscience perspectives.
