Maxwell TwumDr. Maxwell Twum-Asante is an Associate Professor of Psychology, whose area of interest is in cognitive psychology. His research interests span a wide range of topics in basic and applied cognitive psychology: 1) a primary interest is to understand the basic architecture of the human memory system and the processes that operate within it: 2) another facet of his research interest is the investigation into the neural mechanisms underlying learning and recognition of human faces; and 3) on the applied level, he is interested in how people integrate multiple, incomplete, and sometimes conflicting information to determine their subjective state of health, and the cues they rely on to make meaningful decisions about their health.

Dr. Twum-Asante earned his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Ghana, a M.A. in Experimental Psychology from Towson University, and his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Dalhousie University.
