Rachel Barr is a professor at Georgetown University in the Department of Psychology. Prof. Barr is a developmental psychologist whose research focuses on understanding the learning and memory mechanisms that develop during early childhood. Over the past decade her research has focused on how young children obtain information from various media sources such as television, tablets, books, and computers. Prof. Barr and her colleagues have conducted a number of studies examining how children learn from these media and have found evidence of a transfer deficit. They have also conducted studies demonstrating that the quality of parent-infant interactions enhances learning from media.
Annual report 2022
The psychology division has several researchers and research groups. We cover a broad range of topics within psychology, including cognitive, developmental, social, health and clinical psychology. Different research methods are also represented. Researchers at the division work closely with other universities both nationally and internationally. We hope that the annual report will give an overview of the research conducted here.
