Preparing Undergraduates in STEM Using Electrophysiology (PURSUE) is happy
to announce that we have released our *full semester course materials* on
our website – pursueerp.com <http://www.pursueerp.com>. Fill out the access
form to download the materials.

This semester-long course includes 13 modules each containing course
materials and corresponding hands-on lab exercises with EEG data. Course
materials include course lecture slides, in-class active learning
exercises, suggested readings, and assessments. These modules are designed
to be flexibly implemented based upon instructor interest, course level,
and course purpose.

*Modules included:*

*Module 1: Overview of EEG/ERP*

A conceptual introduction to EEG and ERP (what they are and what they are
used for) and basic terminology. Provides examples of real-world

*Module 2: Source of the EEG Waveform*

Explains how an EEG system works. Steps through EEG signal generation from
neuron to waveform, including the creation of potentials and dipoles, and
factors that influence the scalp distribution and waveform.

*Module 3: ERP Components*

An in-depth look at ERP components, including the role of averaging to
reduce noise, physical characteristics and measurements, labeling
conventions, and visualization. Explains how to make inferences about
neural sources and cognitive associations, and introduces common ERP

*Module 4: ERPs in Research*

Introduces how ERPs are used to answer research questions, including basic
research terminology, hypothesis testing and interpretation of waveform
differences. Guide for reading ERP research articles.

*Module 5: Experimental Design*

Detailed introduction to designing ERP experiments including elements of
experimental design, ERP design strategies, and setting parameters.

*Module 6: Programming Experiments*

Implementing the experimental design in a computer program using OpenSesame
or E-prime: basic structures, inserting triggers, timing, etc.

*Module 7: Recording *

EEG/ERP recording and capping procedures.

*Module 8: Ethics*

Presentation of potential ethical issues arising in EEG/ERP studies and how
to handle them. Introduces concepts of diversity and inclusion and examines
exclusionary practices in ERP research.

*Module 9: Pre-Processing*

Step-by-step instruction for processing raw EEG data through filtering,
re-referencing, bad channel identification, baseline correction, binning,
epoching, and artifact rejection.

*Module 10: Averaging & Data Inspection*

Creating individual averages by combining trials by condition within a data
set and grand averages by combining across data sets. Using averaged data
to inspect data quality.

*Module 11: Data Quantification and Statistics*

Introduction to extracting amplitude and latency data from ERP data and the
use of statistics to compare conditions that test hypotheses.

*Module 12: Data visualization*

Introduction to different plot types and the aspects of EEG/ERP data they
convey.  Best practices in creating waveform and scalp distribution plots
to emphasize results.

*Module 13: Final Project and Assessment*

Suggestions for final projects: portfolio of skills, research paper using
PURSUE database, novel research proposal, original data collection project,
or open science/pre-registration project.  Rubrics, how to generate
research ideas, and other support provided.

*Instructor Support Materials include:*

*Introductory Readings with Guide*

This guide contains introductory readings targeted for undergraduate
students who are new to EEG/ERP or learning EEG/ERP. The articles in this
guide have been annotated and rated by undergraduates from the Claremont
Colleges with various backgrounds and class standings, ranging from
sophomores to seniors.

*Setting up Lab Computers*

These materials guide instructors through the process of setting up the
software required for using the PURSUE labs.

*Component Background Readings*

Contains articles that are selected for their readability and accessibility
for undergraduate students. There are articles on ERP in general as well as
the 6 ERP components that are part of the CORE experiments.

*Inclusive Pedagogy Resources*

Contains articles to help instructors get a basic understanding of
inclusive pedagogy.

*CORE in OpenSesame*

Contains instructions for how to run the PURSUE core experiments in

*Preprocessing Videos*

Contains the video tutorials for the preprocessing stream, also available
under Video Tutorials in Multimedia Tools.
