This course offers an introduction to various measures of the human mind that are commonly used in lab experiments in psychology and other behavioral sciences. The focus will be on behavioral measures as well as on measures of body and brain responses.
At a theoretical level, the students will explore the background of these measures and underlying mental processes, as well as how they can be used to address applied research questions. At a practical level, the students will gain experience with using these measures in a controlled lab environment and with analyzing the resulting quantitative data.
More specifically, the course includes three blocks:
- Behavioral measures (e.g., response times, accuracy, and ratings).
- Measures of peripheral nervous system (e.g., heart rate, skin conductance, and eye tracking).
- Measures of central nervous system (e.g., EEG/ERPs, fMRI, and fNIRS).
The course will take place in May 2019 (during weeks 18-22), with about two half-days planned per week. The more specific schedule will be announced later. Teachers: Martien Schrooten, Catherine Tuvblad and Joakim Norberg.
Application no later than October 4th 2021.
