Patricia Reeder


Assistant Professor in Psychological Science

Patricia is the co-director of the Center for Developmental Science and the Cedar Valley CoLab. She is interested in cognitive development and the mechanisms that allow children and adults to implicitly learn complex information. Most of her research focuses on language acquisition, but her ongoing work also explores probability learning, how children and adults learn multiple complex patterns simultaneously (as in multilingualism), creativity, and the psychology of video games.
