When not draining the lab's midnight oil reserves, John spends most of his  free time drinking coffee, reading, rock climbing, biking, boxing, messing around with his 6" maksutov cassegrain scope, mucking around his website, experimenting with new recipes and modifying his overly customized PC rig. 

Dianna Long

Dianna Long is a first year graduate student at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln working toward her Ph.D in Psychology with a focus in Neuroscience and Behavior. She grew up in Kankakee, IL but is more recently from St. Louis, MO where she lived and worked following graduation from Truman State University. Her developing research interests involve belief systems related to "false memory" phenomena and she is currently working on behavioral studies to further analyze the Retrieval Enhanced Suggestibility (RES) effect.

Dianna's interests outside of her graduate program are quite broad and include singing and writing songs, hiking, biking, camping, reading (material other than scientific literature), and playing with her pet rat, Jasper.
