Master's thesis

In this module students complete their Master's Thesis project. 

The SCAN program offers students a number of options for their theses projects with the requirement that students gain some expertise within a neuroscientific domain. The projects can, but do not have to, take advantage of a neuroimaging technique such as EEG or fMRI. 

Students should discuss their ideas with professors of the SCAN program before committing to a project to ensure that their project fulfills the SCAN program MSc thesis requirements. 

Here is how one current SCAN student chose her project:

'I was really interested in the research on perception and especially perceptual illusions that the Blankenburg group had published as well as their use of various advanced neuroimaging techniques and analysis methods so I decided to do my internship with them. I spent a lot of time reading various articles and eventually decided to join a project that had been in development for a while but had been put on hold due to its complexity. I spent the next few months becoming familiar with the background material and methods and optimizing the paradigm and now we're finally ready to start scanning our subjects! The experience so far has been really educational, I work a lot with the other members of the lab but I do most of the coding and preparation myself which ensures that I really understand all of the aspects of the project. I'm really excited to see what sort of results we get!'
