Ivy Thompson ’12 Receives First Place for Psychology Research

Publication Date: 3/21/2012

Recently, Rhodes senior psychology major Ivy Thompson received a first place prize for her research at the Mid-South Psychology Conference. There were close to 200 individuals who took part in the conference held at The University of Memphis.

Thompson’s prize-winning research conducted with University of Memphis Professor Dr. Jeffrey Sable is titled “Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Reduces Automatic Attention in Young Adults.”

In its 15th year, the Mid-South Psychology Conference is a forum for undergraduate psychology students to present original research. Participants receive feedback about the research from their peers, professors, and a panel of judges based on the research project and conference presentation.


Founded in 1848, Rhodes College is a private, coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences. It aspires to graduate students with a lifelong passion for learning, a compassion for others, and the ability to translate academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world.
