Faculty Department of Project Supervisor: 
Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences
Number of Students: 

You might have experienced forgetting what you just had in mind when interrupted. In this project, we will explore what happens to our memories when we get distracted. We will use behavioral experiments and a modeling approach to test 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.
