This course is an upper-level research seminar designed for students who wish to learn electrophysiological techniques and how to apply those techniques to answer research questions in the domain of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuropsychology. Students will help design a study of attention, run participants, and analyze the data. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to develop an original research project from conception through piloting participants. Course requirements consist of reading primary research articles, and designing and executing an event related potential (ERP) research project. The class will cover all elements of setting up an ERP research project and we will focus on both the theory of electrophysiological research techniques as well as practical aspects of developing and running a research project.
