International Synesthesia study

Psychology, UvA

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated student interested in our international synesthesia study. In this project you will help with the recruitment, testing, and translation of synesthesia in any language that is not English or Dutch. Please let us know if you are native or extremely fluent in another language, and have contacts in a country that can help us find synesthetes in another language than English or Dutch. If you are interested, send us a short description of your motivation, your language (fluency) and your network/contacts relevant for the study.

In this project you set up and run online experiments on synesthesia, and analyze the results. You critically examine the setup of the experiment and setup the best way to translate an online experiment (instructions). You do not only take into account what is the best way to take into account linguistic issues, when translating a test, but also what are the effects of cultural differences. You start with a literature search on these topics, propose an experimental setup, run this setup and critically evaluate the results.  After analyzing the results you write the report (thesis).

In this project, you are expected to critically think about the design and setup of experiments, work independently and contribute to the design of the project. Programming skills is a pre but not necessary.

You are supervised by Romke Rouw and Nick Root
