Contents

Group work on a practical research project (e.g. response priming effects) under the supervision of one of the teaching staff. Successful completion of Basic Modules 1 and 2 and the lecture on Perception, Cognition and Knowledge (part of Basic Module 1) are highly recommended.
Students will learn how to design a RT experiment, and measure, preprocess and analyse reaction time and accuracy data. Next to classical methods (outlier detection, repeated-measures analysis-of-variance), students will also learn more advanced methods including (macro- and

micro-level) speed-accuracy trade-off functions, and describing RT data using statistics such as hazard and survivor functions.

Essential mathematical and modeling techniques, experimental design, animal and human participant selection and recruitment, development and preparation of experimental materials, research software (e.g. Experiment Builder), specialized experimental equipment (e.g. response time equipment, eye-tracker), interpretation of experimental results.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

On successfully completing the module students will be able to,
  • recognize and define basic and some more advanced methods in research related to Perception
  • transfer the acquired knowledge to related experimental designs
  • prepare and conduct an experiment in the laboratory; apply practical research skills
  • Summarize and present the results obtained with these specific research methods
