Preparing Undergraduates for Research in Stem-related Fields Using Electrophysiology
PURSUE is a collaborative initiative to facilitate the training of undergraduates in cognitive electrophysiology.
Our website contains instructional tools and teaching materials to guide educators in developing curricula for EEG/ERP classrooms and lab environments.
About the Primary Investigators
The Primary Investigators (PIs) have organized a group of experts in cognitive electrophysiology and assessment who embrace a student-centric approach to education that inspires student-faculty research collaboration. Each PI has substantial experience teaching ERP methodology at an undergraduate level as part of cognitive neuroscience courses, semester-long laboratory courses, and in their research labs.
