JAMES MICHAEL LAMPINEN
James Lampinen is a Distinguished Professor of Psychological Science at the University of Arkansas. He received his Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from Northwestern University in 1996. Dr. Lampinen is one of the original developers of the concept of prospective person memory (Lampinen, Arnal, & Hicks, 2009). Prospective person memory refers to a set of mental processes that are involved in recognizing and reporting an individual that you have been asked to be on the lookout for (e.g., missing persons, wanted persons). He has also published work on the effectiveness of forensic age progressions. Dr. Lampinen's research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
