Research Assistant Position: Introspective Accuracy in Judgment and Decision-Making

Research Assistant Position: Introspective Accuracy in Judgment and Decision-Making
Adam Morris and Professor Fiery Cushman, Psychology/FAS
fall term

 

How well can people perceive the workings of their own minds? This is a fundamental question in cognitive science, but a difficult one to measure. In this project, we will develop measures of introspective accuracy in judgment and decision-making -- i.e. how well people can perceive the...

Research Assistant Position: Neural Architecture and Behavior (spring and summer)

Research Assistant Position: Neural Architecture and Behavior
Dr. Sasha Rayshubskiy, Rowland Institute, Harvarrd University
Spring and Summer 2021


Our lab is interested in neural architectures that define persistent states in animal behavior. For example, how does the brain configure the motor control system to coordinate movements during the persistent state of cooking and how is it configured differently when we’re in a persistent state of playing...
