PhD studentship at School of Life and Health Sciences, Aston University, Birmingham, UK

Neural correlates of configural and part-based object processing in adolescence (3 years) 

Short description: Using EEG, this project studies the development of distinct visual perceptual strategies in children and adolescents during object recognition. The aim is to investigate the cognitive and neural basis of this development by means of event-related potentials (ERPs) and frequency analyses.

For more information please contact Dr Luc Boutsen (l.boutsen at aston.ac.uk) or Dr Martin Jüttner (m.juttner at aston.ac.uk).

Applicants should have or expect a First or a high Upper Second Class honours degree in a science subject and/or hold an MSc in a relevant discipline. A strong interest in developmental cognitive neuroscience, working with children and adolescents, and EEG and ERP analyses techniques, is essential.
