Controlling the precision of mental representations

2023-2024 Spring
Faculty Department of Project Supervisor: 
Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences
Number of Students: 

Humans hold the information they need for the tasks they perform in working memory. Some tasks demand more precise mental representations than others. Can humans exert control over the precision of their mental representations? This study, utilizing EEG and a modeling approach to behavioral data, seeks to answer this question.


- Students are expected to spend at least 6 hours/week. Approximately 4 hours will be spent on data collection, 30 minutes on the weekly project meeting, and 1.5 hours on reading and data analysis.

- Interested students are encouraged to reach out to Eren Günseli to describe what motivates them to participate in this project and their current level of research experience.
