Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Conducting and writing a scientific review

In this project, you will write a scientific review-style paper on a topic of your choice. Topics could range anywhere within psychology or neuroscience, from "how do we diagnose dementia?" to "what are genetic causes of Alzheimer's disease." This process will teach you how to find, access, and critically analyze existing scientific literature and how to assemble primary literature into a scientific review. You will gain skills in writing and editing, as well as an in-depth knowledge of your chosen research topic.

Designing and completing a research project

Have you ever wanted to be a real-life scientist, but you don’t have your very own lab? In this project, you will design a research project that can be completed at home, gather data, and present that data as either a scientific poster or talk. You will learn about the scientific process, how to construct appropriate figures for your data, and how to communicate your results in a formal presentation. You will learn valuable research skills including identifying your independent and dependent variables, statistical analysis, and how to design the best approach to answering any scientific question!
