Before coming to EIU in '91 Dr. Wilson worked for years as a therapist with children and adults. His dissertation mathematically modeled age related slowing in adults and explored the impact of aging on stimulus equivalence class formation. At EIU he conducted research on sexual behavior, arousal and cognition in addition to the psychology of religion. He taught undergrad courses in abnormal psychology, behavior management, and psychology and society over the years. He also served and taught in the M.A. Clinical Psychology program and was active in the local UPI chapter. His family has resided in Coles County since the late 1800's. His children say he will be the last.
