Eyes on the Prize: Student Stars in Soccer and Psychology

Justin Grady’s ability to open his eyes, focus and study his situation has set him up for success as a psychology major and men’s soccer goalkeeper. On the field, he is continually scanning the action, alert for shots from attacking opponents while positioning his teammates and directing strategy through hand signals. And as a research assistant in Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience Stephen Mitroff’s Visual Cognition lab, Grady is testing how those same skills inform learning, attention and perception. His studies may have wide-ranging implications for professionals in fields like aviation security, medical imaging, the military and even sports.

Grady received a CCAS Luther Rice Undergraduate Research Fellowship and was recognized at the GW Research Showcase. He’s one of only two students nationwide selected for the Federation of Associations of Behavioral and Brain Sciences’ Undergraduate Research Excellence Award, which acknowledges undergraduates conducting “research of superior quality and with broader societal impact.”

"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
