Research topics: Our goal is to make quantitative links between cortical activity measured in humans with perceptual behavior.
Techniques: We use computational modeling, human brain activity measurements (functional MRI and EEG) and behavioral measurement (psychophysics).
Seeking undergrads for: Academic year, Summer
Required skills: Programming experience, Coursework - Some knowledge of basic questions in human cognitive neuroscience preferably through course-work (e.g. Intro to Cog Neuroscience, Psych 50 or Perception, Psych 30 also Brain Decoding, Psych 164). Quantitative background (e.g. engineering, computer programming, linear algebra and statistics) are a strong plus as we use computational approaches to experimental design, analysis and modeling.
This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM, Undergrads without previous exposure to laboratory research
