Science Research Project: Neuropsychology
Full course description
In the Neuropsychology Research Project students will form a small research group and join an ongoing research project in the Basic & Applied Neurodynamics (BAND) laboratory at the Department of Neuropsychology and Psychopharmacology. Work in the lab mainly focuses on temporal aspects of cognitive and motor behavior. Your tasks will include all aspects of empirical research from the planning and organization of an experiment to the reporting of the results. Since it is impossible to provide the specific research topics for the project in advance, we encourage you to look at the lab’s website (https://band- lab.com/) to get an idea of ongoing research. We ask all students with a definite interest in joining this Research Project to contact the lab via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). In this email you should provide a short explanation as to how participating in neuropsychological research adds to your curriculum. Include an overview of the relevant courses you did. Basic knowledge of statistics is required. The coordinator and supervisors reserve the right to deny a student access to the project, should the student not meet the prerequisites. If this happens, the student will be allowed to register for another project.
- To let students work together and apply their knowledge of the Natural and Life Sciences in the context of an empirical research project.
- To let students work together and give them first-hand experience of full-time academic research by involving their team in experimental neuropsychological research
SSC2061 Statistics I and courses that are appropriate the particular project. This will be specified in the project description.
Note: This is a time-consuming, full-time project with a high workload. In principle, students should take into account that they need to be available during entire weekdays throughout the project.
- There is no general literature or course book that students need to buy or possess. Students will choose, read, and use literature that is specifically related to their topic.
