Course ObjectiveTo provide students with necessary practical skills to design, carry out
and present an individual research project in cognitive neuropsychology,
clinical neuropsychology or cognitive neuroscience.
Course ContentEach student is allocated to an individual research project, proposed
and supervised by a member of the department of Clinical Neuropsychology
or Cognitive Psychology. Alongside this project there are twelve
meetings to familiarize students with a variety of practical issues
related to research in cognitive neuropsychology, such as ethics,
writing, presenting, the factorial design, and neuropsychological
assessment. During the course, students complete class assignments, hand
in two writing samples (a preregistration and a brief research report)
and deliver two oral presentations (a 5-minutes research proposal and a
10-minutes presentation of completed research in a final symposium).
Teaching MethodsTwelve meetings and individual supervision during the research

The final grade for PSR is based on constituent grades for the
preregistration (20%), the research internship (20%), the brief report
(40%), and the final oral presentation (20%). All constituent grades
should be 5.5 or higher.
LiteratureLiterature is directly related to the student’s research project. The
supervisor will provide a few relevant articles at the beginning of the
project; students search for additional literature in the context of
their writing assignments (preregistration and brief report). Students
can complete class assignments on the basis of the slides presented
during the meetings.
