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.

Writing a scientific review

In this project, you will write a scientific review-style paper on a topic related to psychology or neuroscience. Topics could range from "neural underpinnings of emotion regulation is adolescence" to "how does body awareness impact emotions?". 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.

Health and Wellness in Midlife.

How does our social world impact our health? In this project, you will develop your own research question, generate hypotheses, and analyze data using data from the Midlife in the US study. MIDUS (Midlife in the U.S.) is a national sample of continental U.S. residents, aged 25 to 74, who were first interviewed in 1995-96. The original study was conceived by a multidisciplinary team of investigators interested in the influence of psychological and social factors on health as people age from early adulthood to later life.
