Can "Brain Games" Make Me Smarter?

I'm sure everyone has seen ads for "brain games" you can play on your phone which are marketed to improve cognition. This project will dive into the literature around the efficacy of these products and evidence-based interventions for individuals experiencing cognitive difficulties.

There's More to Psychology Than Meets the Eye

This project explores how patterns of gaze (i.e., where you look) and eye movement (i.e., how you look) can be reflective of certain psychological disorders. We'd narrow it down to one or two disorders of interest and explore the research related to how these fixation patterns may shed light onto the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the chosen disorder. There is robust research in this field related to schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, and more!
