Summer of 2017 Undergraduate Research Initiative

The Cognitive Neuroscience Group (CNG) hosted an undergraduate research initiative in the summer of 2017. Three undergraduate students from area schools were selected to participate in this eight-week-long research internship. Students learned about clinical assessment of language and cognition, and were trained on data collection and analysis of event-related potentials (ERPs) and eye tracking data. The undergraduates became part of the CNG community, learning from IHP CSD graduate students, participating in weekly brown bags, and presenting research.

Summer 2017 CNG Undergraduate interns:

  • Dani Marrissa Grant, Bunker Hill Community College
  • Sijju Karki, UMass Boston
  • Ivy M. Mwangi, Williams College
