This unit can only be enrolled in with Special Approval. There is an Expression of Interest (EoI) application form for students to complete prior to the start of semester. Please go to the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Community iLearn page and read the information under COGS3250 to find out about the criteria, the EoI, potential supervisors and contacts for questions/more information.
This unit will provide students with the opportunity to participate in an independent research project under a supervisor from the Department of Cognitive Science. Students will have the opportunity to participate in multiple stages of research which may include developing research plans, writing proposals, conducting experiments, analysing data, and reporting results. Especially ambitious and productive students may earn the opportunity to present their findings at a scientific conference, and in rare cases, may even earn authorship on a peer reviewed paper. Admission to the unit is subject to supervisor availability and approval.
Each student will work with an individual supervisor, and the details of participation and relevant meetings will be arranged individually. In addition, the students will participate in three group meetings with the convenor & other supervisors.
There will be an iLearn site for shared resources and discussions. The group meetings will be scheduled to be at a time convenient to the students - the dates for this will be organised through iLearn in Week 1.
The convenor is available for additional support if needed - please email for an appointment.
