Possibilities for internships
At the moment there are possibilities for four kinds of research
projects / internships:
- Computational modelling. Help develop computational models of
brain and behavior. Programming experience required (Matlab
and/or Python particularly helpful).
- EEG. Measure the activity the brain generates while learning
about regularities in the world, and while forming
representations of novel pictures. Programming experience
(again, Matlab and/or Python) a strong pro, willingness to learn
these languages is also sufficient.
- Reading. Measure eye movements while adults read a text, or
help develop tools to do the same in children. Programming
experience (Java and/or Python) a strong pro, willingness to
learn these languages is also sufficient.
- Web research: internet can be a great tool for research, but
the experiment must be fun - otherwise participants will not
come to the site. In one project we will try to build a
game in which people have to guess the next word in a text.
Programming experience again required.
