ASPIRE student presents at Poster Day

Mangun Lab ASPIRE student Kelsey Klein presented her preliminary findings at the second annual ASPIRE Symposium, held as part of the annual Center for Mind and Brain Poster Day on June 3, 2016.  Klein’s results suggest that differences in position of eye fixation with respect to visual stimulation may have a notable effect on scalp-recorded event-related potentials, indicating that it is important to tightly control locus of fixation in studies of psychological processes that make use of visual stimuli.  This event marked Klein’s first scientific presentation and served only to whet her appetite for scientific research, according to Klein.  (Here Klein is shown discussing her study with Center for Mind and Brain Research Scientist Clif Saron.)
