conduct a small training study to test whether some kind of training or intervention leads to changes in a cognitive domain. Although we will be measuring performance using a behavioural task, you will be responsible for theorizing which neural area(s) / network(s) might change as a function of training. This will be a pilot study in which you will serve as the single participant.

I’m very behind in this assigment so Im in desperate need of help. Its due soon and I havent done anything for it. You can make data up for this report to make the writing easier. I also left the option for you to choose your own topic so you can pick what topic interests you the most. Heres a short description of the task however, a full more comprehensive detailed instructions will be provided in the attached files:You will conduct a small training study to test whether some kind of training or intervention leads to changes in a cognitive domain. Although we will be measuring performance using a behavioural task, you will be responsible for theorizing which neural area(s) / network(s) might change as a function of training. This will be a pilot study in which you will serve as the single participant. As such, I encourage you to get creative and to choose a training domain that you find engaging. That way, you can make time to do something you have been meaning to do! Possible examples include (but are not limited to):1. Video game training (e.g., Green & Bavelier, 2012)2. Taking walks in nature (e.g., Berman et al., 2008)3. Implementing a light exercise regimen (e.g., Mandolesi et al., 2018) 4. Learning a musical instrument (e.g., Kraus & Chandrasekaran, 2010) 5. Learning a second language (e.g., Bubbico et al., 2019)6. Taking naps (e.g., Lovato & Lack, 2010)7. Mindfulness meditation (e.g., Zeidan et al., 2010)
Throughout the year, you have (1) developed and executed a mini research project related to “brain training” and (2) developed hands-on programming skills that are frequently used by cognitive neuroscientists in their research. It is my hope that this project has allowed you to explore some facet of cognitive neuroscience that interests you personally, while also giving you a sense of the kinds of tools that cognitive neuroscientists use in designing, conducting, and disseminating research.The Final Research Report takes a slightly different angle compared to the Project Proposal. Rather than simply completing the final two components of an APA-style report (i.e., filling in the Results and Discussion), you will be responsible for writing a short grant proposal that proposes a new study based on your existing data. The new study you propose can have behavioural measures, but it should also use another methodology covered in this course (e.g., fMRI, EEG, tDCS, MEG, fNIRS, TMS). In other words, you will use your existing data from your case-study project to propose a larger-scale experiment that uses at least one neuroimaging methodology.1 Don’t worry – you will still be able to use the Project Proposal as a foundation for completing this assignment!LogisticsThe Final Research Report is due on Wednesday, April 13th by 11:55pm. In your submission, you must also include your R script that you used to complete your bootstrapping analyses and data visualization. This can be included as a separate attachment or included at the end of the Final Research Report
