This email was sent from department chair Norma Graham:

Dear Students in Professor Wiedenmayer’s Mind, Brain, and Behavior Class Psych W1010y,

I am writing you on the behalf of the psychology department with very sad news. We learned this afternoon that your teacher Prof. Christoph Wiedenmayer died of a heart attack. This is sad and shocking.

The psychology department will, of course, make substitute arrangements for the rest of the semester as soon as we can so that you can continue the rest of this course. Tomorrow, we will hold class, but no new course material will be presented. We will discuss with you the plans for the next few class periods leading up to the exam. We are hoping to also have someone from counseling services available at that time to help us all to adjust to this situation. We are planning to continue with the class as regularly scheduled. The exam will be held on April 1. The one adjustment that we plan for the moment, is that self-test #4 will be now due on Thursday, March 25.

If you have any questions or concerns, now or going forward, please let your T.A.s or Professors Lois Putnam or Trish Lindemann or me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Norma Graham
Professor and Chair
Department of Psychology
