Getting Off The Ground

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to blog about the progress were making in the social Cognition Lab. I have been trained by Prof. Dickter and some of the other volunteers that have done the studies before. After a shadowing one of the other research assistants a couple times I have started to run participants on my own.  Initially we were worried about getting enough participants for each of our studies, especially our study that is race specific; but after putting flyers around campus we seem to be getting a steady turn out.  Majority of the participants have been great to work with and generally seem interested in helping out as best they can and the money probably doesn’t hurt either. Along with working in our lab I am also helping out in another lab focusing on political expectancy. I have learned how to use EEG on participants which will be great experience for future research. Hope everyone else’s research is going well!
