Pavlov CoupleKen Leising, Assistant Professor

I received my B.A. in Psychology from Texas Christian University (TCU).  I received my Ph.D. in Psychology (Learning and Behavior) from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) under the supervision of Dr. Aaron Blaisdell.

I then spent one year as a Postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston in the laboratory of Dr. Anthony Wright before accepting the position of Assistant Professor of Psychology at TCU.

I currently serve as co-advisor for the TCU chapters of Golden Key International Honour Society and Psi Chi.  I am active in the Comparative Cognition Society and the Psychonomic Society.  I serve as Member-at-Large for the Comparative Cognition Society and as a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) Committee on Animal Research and Ethics (CARE).

Outside of psychology, I enjoy reading and listening to just about any kind of science – from anatomy to zoology.  I am also a very big soccer fan.  Germany – World Cup 2014 Champions!  I am to Lauren Leising.  She is a marriage and family therapist.  We have many fun debates regarding the influences of cognition versus stimulus control on behavior.  We have two kids, who challenge and amaze us on a daily basis.
