Number of Students: 

Topic: Attention and memory are two cognitive functions vital for human behavior. We need to attend to relevant information while ignoring distractors. Likewise, what and how we remember affect our grades, daily routines, and personal interactions. Various questions reagarding memory and attention are being explored in the Memory, Attention, & Cognitive Control Lab led by Dr. Eren Günseli. This specific project will be on when and how we bring memories to mind and how knowledge about the world (eg., animals vs plants) affects how we hold information in mind.
Responsibilities: Students will be expected to contribute to collecting data from human participants in psychology and cognitive neuroscience experiments, join weekly project meetings, and write a final report on the project topic and their roles in the project.
