Lab meetings and experiments begin!

It’s been a busy month in the lab. Anya Lunden and Dan Parker are currently running a new batch of experiments. Recruiting participants has never been easier since we joined the participant pool maintained by the Psychology department.

Our lab is still ‘under construction’, but we’re making great progress in getting everything set up. One of our most recent additions is a dual computer workstation housed inside the sound booth. This setup allows us to run multiple participants simultaneously (read: we get a lot of data quickly). Prof. Parker is also currently working with the Procurement Office to obtain a new eye-tracking system. We’ll also be getting some new furniture soon too!

Another big development is that we held our first lab meeting in preparation for summer research. This meeting was an informational meeting, and was well attended by undergraduate students. As we transition into summer, we’ll start holding smaller meetings more regularly to discuss current research developments. Stay tuned!

LaRose awarded honors fellowship

Congratulations to Bobby LaRose, who has received funding from the Charles Center for his honors thesis project on “Structural priming across cognitive domains: From music to language and math“! Bobby will conduct the research for his project in the lab this summer, with his advisor Dan Parker. You can learn more about the project from Bobby himself by watching the video below:
