Spring 2010 not offered
Students in this advanced undergraduate research course will work in teams on novel and on-going research studies focused on understanding neurocognitive dysfunction and its treatment in neuropsychiatric illness. Students will be matched to a research project and will participate in different aspects of this research including background literature review, acquiring elementary skills in neurocognitive and symptom assessment, and collecting and/or analyzing extant data using SPSS. Students may also be involved in learning cognitive training procedures. Class meetings will be devoted to a review of contemporary empirical research, supervised training on research assessment instruments, student oral presentations of proposed research studies, and results of subsequent data analyses. Results of student studies are expected to culminate in a peer-reviewed publication-style presentation of research findings.
Quantitative Reasoning, Writing
Reading of contemporary literature and discussions and presentation of research findings will require an understanding of quantitative relationships. Synthesizing the research literature and formulating and expresssing these hypotheses in written format in the final laboratory report will require writing skills.
