Research topics: We examine how brain and visual perception change across development to understand how the interplay between anatomical constraints and viewing experience shapes visual cortex and ultimately behavior.
Techniques: We use human brain activity measurements (functional MRI and EEG) and behavioral measurement (psychophysics).
Seeking undergrads for: Academic year, Summer
Location: On-campus research projects only
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). Prior coding experience in Matlab and/or python is a plus.
This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM, Undergrads without previous exposure to laboratory research
