Marcia K. Johnson

Marcia K. Johnson is a Sterling Professor of psychology at Yale University. She received her Ph.D. in 1971 from University of California, Berkeley. Her research has focused on human memory, specifically the component processes of reflection and consciousness, mechanisms of veridical and distorted memory, memory disorders (resulting from amnesia, frontal brain damage, aging), and the relation between emotion and cognition.

Johnson has received a number of awards, including the American Psychological Association Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award,[1] the American Psychological Society William James Fellow Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Johnson joined the faculty at Yale in 2000, after previously teaching at Stony Brook University and Princeton University. She became the Dilley Professor of Psychology in 2004, and was appointed as a Sterling Professor in 2011.[2]
