Enrolment in Master's programme Neurocognitive Psychology.

Priority is given to students with experience in methods used in the respective lab or students who have taken the respective teaching modules.

Many projects require knowledge of either EEG or fMRI analysis!
We strongly recommend to take either psy170: Neurophysiology or psy270: Functional Neuroimaging prior to the practical project.
Goals of module:
Students will learn to plan, perform and analyse a study in the field of neurocognition. They will need to apply statistical knowledge and programming competencies to the data acquisition and analysis of data. Results will be related to the current neurocognitive literature and presented at the end of the module. Additionally, students should gain experience as participants in studies.

Acquisition of skills in conducting experimental research; application of knowledge of research methods and data analysis; project management and independent project work; presentation of results and design of a research poster; time management; knowledge of literature search, comprehension of scientific texts, language skills.
  • The students develop an empirical investigation, carry it out and analyse the results.
  • The students present and discuss their project in respect to recent literature in regular meetings and in a poster symposium.
  • Students can develop an experimental design for a follow-up study which could potentially be the topic of their Master's thesis.
  • As part of the practical project, students should participate in studies of other practical projects!
