While most students bring their assignments back home in a notebook, some are wearing their classwork on their wrists. For his Statistical Methods in Psychological Science course, Gregory Samanez-Larkin, assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience, has distributed FitBit devices to each student for the duration of the semester. Data collected from the devices—which track the wearer's physical activity—will be utilized as a part of the class's curriculum.
In July 2017 the lab will move from Yale to Duke University. We will be in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and primarily affiliated with the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience. Students interested in applying to graduate school in our lab to begin in Fall 2017 will need to apply to Duke through either Psychology & Neuroscience or the Cognitive Neuroscience Admitting Program.
