K. Anders Ericsson FSCW/Conradi Eminent Scholar Florida State Cognitive & Expertise Labs Brief biographical description with a listing of scientific papers ERICSSON, K. ANDERS, is Conradi Eminent Scholar and Professor of Psychology at Florida State University. In 1976 he received his Ph. D. in Psychology from University of Stockholm, Sweden, followed by post-doctoral fellowship at Carnegie-Mellon University. In 1980 he moved to University of Colorado at Boulder, where he remained until 1992 with the exception of a two-year leave during 1987-89 at the Max- Planck Institute for Human Development and Education in Berlin. His dissertation (Ericsson, 1976) examined how verbal reports on cognitive processes provided insight into the structure of problem solving on the 8-puzzle. In collaboration with Herbert Simon he proposed a model of the processes involved in verbalization of sequences of thought and showed how some verbal report requirements, such as generations of explanation, have reactive effects on the studied cognitive processes whereas other reporting procedures, such as think-aloud and retrospective reports, valid data on thought processes. This work was initially published in Psychological Review (Ericsson & Simon, 1980) and then expanded into a book "Protocol Analysis: Verbal Reports as Data" (Ericsson & Simon, 1984) which was subsequently revised (Ericsson & Simon, 1993). With Bill Chase he studied the acquisition of a vastly improved digit-span in college students (Ericsson, Chase, & Faloon, 1980) and they developed the Theory of Skilled Memory (Chase & Ericsson, 1982; Ericsson & Chase, 1982) to explain their findings and other data on exceptional memory performance. With Walter Kintsch he extended this theory into Long-Term Working Memory

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
