Jemma Cook, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Psychology - Department of Social Sciences and Public Administration
Dr. Cook’s areas of expertise include behavior analysis and behavioral pharmacology. Her work focuses on reinforcement parameters, extinction, and relapse phenomena as related to behavior broadly with an emphasis on substance abuse. Dr. Cook encourages her students to understand how the behavior of humans and nonhuman animals interact with and are maintained by the environment. With this understanding, she helps her students design experiments to expand our knowledge about behavior and inform the development of potential behavioral or pharmacotherapies.
