“I work on how the brain con­trols move­ment. I use Gorilla to design a battery of cog­ni­tive tasks to inves­ti­gate how the cere­bel­lum con­tribute to cog­ni­tion. These tasks span a wide range, from lan­guage to visual cog­ni­tion, from math to atten­tion.” Con­tin­ue Reading Jonathan Tsay

“Online research has the great poten­tial for us to reach out to a more rep­re­sen­ta­tive sample and to create a more par­tic­i­­pant-friend­­ly research expe­ri­ence. It is tremen­dous­ly helpful for studies that inves­ti­gate indi­vid­ual dif­fer­ences and learn­ing in chil­dren.” Con­tin­ue Reading Anqi Hu
