As a Division I swimmer at Gardner-Webb, Taylor Schwartz (’16) of Westerville, Ohio, is accustomed to the nerves that accompany her athletic performances. Her interest in the subject intensified when she was named an undergraduate research scholar. Using her background as a psychology major, she and her mentor, Dr. Brooke Thompson, structured a cognitive neurology experiment in which Schwartz could measure performance, social, and pain anxiety among individuals set to perform an athletic task.
