The courses I regularly teach at OUL include General Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, and Evolutionary Psychology.




While in graduate school at the University of Nevada Reno, I investigated the vocal and gestural (ASL) communication of cross-fostered chimpanzees. Later I investigated the cognitive developments supporting human problem solving from early adolescence through young adulthood. I also conducted a case study of a chimpanzee who was raised by humans from infancy in New Jersey, and who learned from his foster parents a gestural system of communication that he continued to use until he died. Most recently, my research interests have focused on the history of psychology. I am currently working on two books. One is a history of a roadside attraction called the IQ Zoo in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The other is a translation of a Russian book in evolutionary psychology called The Prehistory of Society.
