TWU professor and chair Shannon Scott, PhD, featured in DRC cloudy weather article

The Denton Record-Chronicle interviewed TWU Psychology and Philosophy professor and chair, Shannon Scott, Ph.D., for a recent article about cloudy weather and its impact on mood.

"When spring arrives with better weather, most people have a higher mood, better memory and a broader cognitive style, especially when compared with the poorer weather in winter, studies show.

'This year, by this point, we’ve typically had that weather shift,' Scott said. “Some people may be experiencing a mismatch of what we expected to feel and what we are actually feeling.'"
