Matthew A. Thomas received his BA and PhD in cognitive/experimental psychology from the University at Albany, SUNY.

He has published research investigating false memories, long-term memory, word processing (semantic priming), capture of visuospatial attention, and the influence of video games on cognition. His laboratory at Norwich is currently exploring the influence of video game play on visual attention and working memory as well as how the disruption of object templates stored in long-term memory automatically capture attention.

When not in the lab, Prof. Thomas teaches courses in experimental psychology, perception, cognition, behavioral statistics, and works with students conducting their own original research projects.

Thomas chairs the College of Liberal Arts curriculum committee and serves on the Institutional Review Board and as an advisory board member for the Peace and War Center. He also coordinates the university’s Psych Lunch research presentation series and serves as club advisor for the mountaineering rock/ice climbing association.
