Research Spotlight: Michael Toma

Although completed SCRABBLE boards and crossword puzzles are similar in appearance, the cognitive demands of these games are qualitatively different. Are these differences reflected in the working memory abilities of experts in these games? To test this possibility, visuospatial and verbal ability were measured in the two groups of nationally-ranked experts and compared to a group of college undergraduates whose mathematic and verbal SAT scores on average were above 700. These experts were recruited from the National Scrabble Association and American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. Michael's thesis research has focused on trying to capture the cognitive mechanisms responsible for expertise in the domains of SCRABBLE and crossword solving. Feel free to contact Michael for any questions on his research!
