Adam Goodie, associate professor of psychology, was a recipient of a 2012 Creative Research Medal from UGA. Dr. Goodie studies pathological gambling and the cognitive processes, decision-making and personality characteristics associated with this dangerous condition that affects millions of Americans. Goodie discovered that the likelihood for one to gamble does not depend entirely on objective probabilities or how the individual perceives them, but on whether the individual perceives they can control the probabilities. Congratulations to Dr. Goodie on this outstanding achievement. For more Information click here.
