Christina Yu

Graduate Student (Duke)


I graduated from NYU in 2018 with a B.A. in Psychology and from The University of Chicago in 2019 with a M.A. in Social Sciences, with a concentration in Psychology. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke. My primary research interests are how our brain categorizes and recalls previously seen items and how normal aging effects this recognition process. I am also interested in false memory, and the potential neural compensatory mechanisms that can counteract normal decline in memory throughout the lifespan.
