My Info

Hi, I'm Emily Alspector, I am a senior Psych major at Haverford, and I also am completing an NBS concentration and a minor in linguistics. I have no clue what I want to do with my life, except I know that it's going to be interesting because I get bored easily. I really enjoy travelling and observing people, so if I could somehow get to do that and get paid, I'd be set. But I'm a realist, also, and I know I will probably end up travelling for a little while until my bank account gets dangerously low and I'll settle down somewhere, maybe wherever I am when that happens.

I am very interested in cultures and learning about cultural differences, especially with regards to cognition and language. I think the developmental processes of language are interesting as well as nonverbal communication and what we are saying through gestures, intonation, etc. I'm not exactly sure how I can relate neurobiology to linguistics, but I would be very interested if anyone has any ideas or articles I could read.

I am also taking my senior sem with Professor Grobstein and am very excited for both of these classes. I think they will be a great opportunity to think differently about psychology and science in general. I would be very interested to learn more about psychosomatic symptoms and what they entail, and maybe how they relate to phantom limbs and other post-traumatic-related phenomenon.
