Computational Cognitive Neuroscience LabLearning and decision makingSam GershmanNorthwest BuildingOur lab is beginning to undertake a large-scale study of "computational phenotypes", which are a collection of parameters, estimated from behavioral data, that specify various cognitive mechanisms (e.g., learning rate, choice variability, temporal discounting). We are interested in understanding how these parameters change over time, what drives these changes, and how the changes manifest in the underlying brain circuitry.The student will build web version of behavioral tasks, collect and analyze the data, learn how to build and fit computational models, and conduct brain imaging. Depending on the student's progress, they may also have the opportunity to participate in writing up the results for publication. The student should be prepared to work at least 10 hours a week in the lab for the entire semester.

Snedeker LabLanguage Acquisition and Language ProcessingDr. Jesse SnedekerSimge Topaloglu (Grad student)William James HallThis project will investigate whether and how children come to learn that presupposed content is presupposed (as opposed to asserted). The project will basically have 2 stages: (1) a detailed corpus search and (2) an experimental study. RA assistance will be required for three broad types of tasks throughout the semester. We will first do a corpus study and design & construct the materials that will be used in the subsequent experimental study. The corpus study will involve looking for a certain set of items in a prespecified corpus and classifying them according to the instructions that will be provided. The material design stage will involve creating test sentences and pictures for the experiments that will follow. We hope to have completed this part by mid-spring, and to start with the experiments then. RAs will help with running the experiments, and their contribution will be particularly significant in the production study, where they are expected to produce sentences and interact with the child (3-5 years of age) on a one-on-one basis.

Preferred background: Experience with Microsoft Excel; Familiar with linguistic concepts and terms; Previous interactions with young children; Native English-speaker (it's okay if you're multilingual, as long as English was one of the first languages learned); Experience with CLAN software (used to do searches in the CHILDES database) would be extremely helpful, but is not required. If you don’t have experience with CLAN, you are expected to familiarize yourself with it and to learn to use the commands that we need. (They are not too complicated). The CLAN manual is available online at https://talkbank.org/manuals/CLAN.pdf, so you can check it out and get a feel for what it is like.

Laboratory for Developmental Studies (Spelke Lab)Infant & child cognition Elizabeth SpelkeWilliam James HallSeeking interested and motivated students to assist with research in Prof. Elizabeth Spelke's cognitive development lab, under the aegis of the Laboratory for Developmental Studies and the Harvard-MIT Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines. Most of the research in the lab uses behavioral methods, focused on infants' spontaneous actions of looking at, reaching for, or smiling to objects and people, to investigate the basic cognitive capacities of infants, toddlers, and children, with an emphasis on the development of perception and knowledge of objects and their mechanical interactions, agents and their instrumental actions, people and their social interactions, number, and geometry. Current research projects in the infant lab focus on topics including infants' attribution to objects of abstract properties such as mass, infants' attributions of goals and intentions to agents, infants' attributions of perceptions, beliefs, and emotions to people, and infants' inferences about the geometrical properties of visual forms. Experimental research on these topics is conducted in collaboration with investigators developing computational models of human cognition and its development, and with investigators exploring the brain systems underlying these capacities. Current projects in the child lab aim to connect the basic cognitive abilities that emerge in infants to children's developing mastery of symbols and school mathematics. Some of this research is conducted in collaboration with economists conducting randomized field experiments assessing the effectiveness of such interventions at scale. We accept students to work in the lab for course credit (1652r), as part of the college work-study program, or (in rare cases) as volunteers. We are especially welcoming of students who are considering honors thesis projects with an interdisciplinary focus, addressed to these or related topics. Research assistants work in the lab for 8 hours per week and attend weekly course meetings during which grad students discuss their research interests and the current state of their research projects. Throughout the semester, students have the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of research topics within cognitive science. Additionally, each student is paired with a grad student or postdoc in the lab so as to focus on one topic in depth. In the lab, research assistants will be responsible for recruiting and scheduling infant and child participants and their families, assisting lab researchers in testing infants and children, interacting with families when they come to the lab, coding infant looking time responses and toddler behavioral responses, and working with grad students to complete tasks specific to their research. This course is open to students of all concentrations and there are no prerequisites, though preference is given to students whose academic interests dovetail with those of the lab's investigators and students. The weekly course meeting time is TBD and students' schedules will be taken into consideration.https://www.harvardlds.org/our-labs/spelke-labspelke-lab-members/spelke-lab-members/Yes.Yes.Yes.Yes.Yes, Work-Study Eligible Only.Yes.101If interested, please contact lab manager Bill Pepe at wpepe@g.harvard.edu.Bill Pepewpepe@g.harvard.edu

Cognitive and Neural Organization LabBrain organization, Visual processingTalia KonkleEmilie Josephs, Leyla Tarhan, Dan JaniniWilliam James HallOur projects investigate the nature of how we visually process different objects, actions, and scales of space. We use a combination of behavioral and
neural methods to explore the computations involved and map the brain areas that contribute to these abilities.
We are looking for students to work a minimum of 10 hours/week for at least 1 full semester. Exact schedule is negotiable and depends upon the student's schedule. Undergraduate research assistants will help to collect and edit stimuli, run participants on behavioral experiments, and observe and assist during fMRI experiments. If the student is interested, he or she may also attend weekly lab meetings (in which we discuss current research relevant to our interests and present ongoing work), learn basic coding skills,
and help to build small behavioral experiments that extend the lab's current work. No prior research experience is necessary.

Systems Neuroscience of Psychopathologyimpulsivity, psychopathology, self-control, antisocial behavior, aggressionJoshua BuckholtzNorthwest BuildingWhy can't some people stop themselves from doing things that hurt them? Why can't some people stop themselves from doing things that hurt others? We're interested in understanding how genes and life experience shape individual differences in self-control, aggression, and antisocial behavior. Our research uses brain imaging, brain stimulation, and behavioral testing to understand why and how people develop disorders of self-control (e.g. drug addiction, antisocial personality disorder, and psychopathy).
Research assistants will work 10-12 hours per week. Duties include recruiting participants, designing and conducting experiments (behavioral, brain stimulation, and neuroimaging) and data analysis. Motivated and qualified RAs will have the opportunity to learn how to acquire and analyze brain imaging and brain stimulation data. Current lab projects focus on the identification and manipulation of brain circuits involved in aggression, antisocial behavior, and cost-benefit decision-making by combining computational modeling with neuroimaging and non-invasive brain stimulation. In addition, students will have the opportunity to work on a large-scale (25,000 subjects) collaborative study linking gene pathways to symptom severity, cognition, and real-world behavior in individuals with major depression and bipolar illness.

No experience required, but interest in clinical/affective/cognitive neuroscience and experimental research is essential, as is an enthusiasm for learning and a strong work ethic. Candidates should be highly motivated, reliable and detail oriented. Programming skills (especially Python, Matlab, or Javascript) and experience using statistical software (e.g SPSS, STATA or R) highly desired. For students interested in the genetics study, experience with genetic analysis and/or functional genomic methods highly valued.

Gilbert LabConversation, intergenerational perception, change in public opinion, how people change over time, ideological dividesProfessor Daniel GilbertAdam MastroianniWilliam James HallNobody Knows When to Stop Talking: our past research we've done shows that almost nobody leaves a conversation when they want to. We are currently investigating whether this is true with conversations between more than two people.

The Ideological Turing Test: In order to participate in a good-faith debate, you should be able to state the case for the opposite side so well that an outside observer might mistakenly think you really believe it. We plan to get people to write statements that either reflect their true feelings on an issue, or the opposite of their true feelings, and see whether readers can tell the difference.

Social change: our previous research shows that people overestimate how much public opinion has changed. For instance, they think support for gun control has dramatically increased since 1972, when in fact it hasn't changed at all (it's always been pretty high). We're currently working on why this happens.

Intergenerational perception: How do people think they and others change over time? Our previous research shows that young people think aging makes you worse and that young and old generations are equally good, while old people think it makes you better and the older generation is better than the younger one. We're currently working on why this happens.
Students participate in all aspects of one or more research projects, including idea generation, study design, running studies, analyzing data, and interpreting results. The work changes week to week as research progresses. For instance, we may be analyzing results for a week or two, deciding on next steps the next week, designing the followup study the week after that, then running it, then analyzing the results again. Students are given a lot of autonomy in how they complete their projects week to week. This is a great fit for someone who wants hands-on experience in how social psychological research gets made.Yes.Yes.Yes.No.Yes.31Email Adam Mastroianni (mastroianni@g.harvard.edu) with transcript and CV/resumeAdam Mastroiannimastroianni@g.harvard.edu

Vision LabHow do we learn to attend to things that are 'alive'?George A. AlvarezWilliam James Hall, 7th FloorHumans naturally pay attention to other animate agents in their environment, a prosocial behavior that has been documented as early as a few weeks. What internal mechanisms give rise to this behavior? Also, do differences in the ability to attend to animate agents help us understand patients with autism spectrum disorder? This project investigates these questions using a combination of behavioral studies (in adults and kids with and without autism), real-life robots, eye-tracking, and and computational modeling (deep reinforcement learning in simulated game engine environments). Work 10+ hours in lab per week helping us to collect video and eye tracking data from participants as they watch a real-life robot display. www.juliandefreitas.comYes.Yes.Yes.Yes.Yes.No.Yes.21Email Julian De Freitas defreitas@g.harvard.edu with a short statement regarding why you're interested in the work, and what experience you have working with people.

Langer LabMindfulness and SynchronyEllen LangerAlan Haas13th Floor William James HallThe study examines how mindfulness can improve the dynamics of interpersonal relationships through its positive cognitive and behavioral effects during conversations. We are particularly interested in the effects of mindfulness on interpersonal synchrony and coordination. The study involves pairs of participants meeting for a conversation and observing their behavior. Our goal is to complete the running of the study participants in the first half of the semester and then analyze the data for a variety of different effects, especially by watching and rating/coding videos for synchrony etc. We will need one or two RAs to help finishing running participants for the study, analyze data, and to assist in writing related tasks. As considerable progress was made in the fall semester and the study is already running, the RAs will only need to run a limited number of pairs of participants (which requires to be there 1 hour each), to view and analyze videos (largest time commitment), and to help with research tasks related to writing a paper(s) that will be published. As this is a volunteer position and course credit will not be offered, the commitment level is slightly flexible and likely to be 5-10 hours a week.http://www.ellenlanger. comYes.Yes.No.No.Yes.21e-mail Alan Haas to express interestAlan Haasalan@psychobiophysics.org
