Lab rotation proposal:
~ Sep-Dec 2016 ~ Jan-March 2017 ~ Apr-June 2017
In january 2015, our team has launched the BRAiN’US project, which aims at crowdscourcing cognitive experiments (https://sites.google.com/site/brainusapp2/). BRAiN'US 1.0 gathered 8 psychological experiments into a smartphone app, designed to test cognitive processes engaged in social decision making, including executive functions and theory of mind. This has generated a massive amount of data (about 30000 registered users), which we are currently analyzing.We now wish to develop a second version of the app (BRAiN'US 2.0), which will focus on distinct set of cognitive functions. BRAiN'US 2.0 will contain a set of cognitive tests relevant for assessing a broad set of basic cognitive functions (such as attention, emotion, motivation, etc...). It is a collaborative project that engages many cognitive neuroscience research teams at the ICM, and an industrial partner that is responsible for the IT.In this context, the objective of the ENP lab rotation's project is twofold: (1) designing a prototype for BRAiN'US 2.0, and (2) piloting the test battery on a small (n=30) sample of subject. If willing, the successful candidate will be involved in the coordination of the scientific team with the industrial partner.Note: no specific IT skill is required, since the prototype will be designed in MATLAB.
