Bates College student Sanah Hasan of Plano presented her student research entitled "Effects of Ego-Depletion on Controlled Responses during the Shooter Bias Game" at the 18th Mount David Summit. The annual celebration of academic achievement highlights undergraduate research; student creative work in art, dance, theater, music and film/video; projects conducted in the context of academic courses; and community-engaged research.
"A major feature of academic life at Bates, the Mount David Summit gives our students the opportunity to share their novel and consequential creative and scholarly work," said Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty Malcolm Hill.
Hasan, the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Mirza S. Hasan of Plano and a 2015 graduate of Greenhill School was among 217 Bates students who presented research posters, short talks, panel discussions, demonstrations, literary readings, and video screenings highlighting their work. Hasan worked with Helen Boucher, professor of psychology, on her research.
