Elizabeth Casey Elizabeth graduated in the summer of 2008, after completing her thesis in Dr. Johnsrude's lab in her senior year at Queen's. Elizabeth examined the listening relationship between adolescent children and their mothers, and gathered participants through the following summer. She hypothesized that due to the dependence children have on their mothers for their survival early in life, that children would not be able to ignore their mother's voice to listen to new voices as they would with other familiar voices. Initial results indicated that this was not the case, and that adolescent children can use what they know about their mother's voice the same way they use other familiar voices. Though, to ideally test this hypothesis a younger sample should be used. More data remains to be analyzed. Elizabeth is currently working at an adolescent therapy center in New Hampshire, and will be applying to Clinical Psychology programs for fall 2009.
