Get Involved

There are many ways in which you can get involved in the goCognitive web project. You can contribute as an individual, a group of motivated students, an honors society, or as a class. Maybe a class project can be devoted to building content for the goCognitive website? Below we have listed a few options, but if you have another creative idea that we haven't thought about, feel free to bring it up...

Some ideas for what you can do

Write

We are planning a publicly available selection of pdf-summaries of important fields within cognitive neuroscience. If you would like to contribute or if you have a paper that nicely summarizes an important piece of the puzzle, please let us know.

Test

We are also working on a quiz section for the website - this will allow students to test themselves on many different topics and at different levels of difficulty / detail. Testing oneself is one of the best ways to consolidate freshly learned material. In addition, it gives you an opportunity to know what you don't know and where you still have deficits. To make this feasible we have to create a large (very large) set of questions for all kinds of content areas. Help in this area is much appreciated.

Program

We are always trying to build our set of demonstrations (currently programmed in Flash). If you have programming skills that you haven't put to good use for a while, maybe you want to contribute a demonstration to the site? Or if you like to work in photoshop, maybe you want to construct a new set of images for the change blindness demonstration?

Interview

Our video archive is designed to grow every year. We are currently conducting around half a dozen interviews each year. Through a grant from the National Science Foundation we are able to fund interested students to help us with the planning and execution of these interviews. If you are interested in this aspect you can look for the NSF grant opportunity on the home page for the site.
