Content
Social psychologists increasingly include neuroscience methods in their research. Insights in the application, analysis, and interpretation of such data is indispensable for the modern social psychological researcher. In the present course, PhD students acquire hands on insight into these techniques by two experts on various neuro- and psycho-physiological measurements. 
The main focus will be on (1) the measurement and analysis of hormonal data; (2) the measurement and analysis of functional MRI data; and (3) the measurement and analysis of EEG data. Participants of the course will also be given a live demonstration of a fMRI measurement in a scanner, a live demonstration of an EEG measurement, and they will possibly receive a short tour through a lab where saliva samples for hormonal data are analyzed. The workshop will have the following, more specific set-up (see below).

Format

Day 1
Morning session: PhD students receive a lecture by Dr. van der Meij about hormonal measurements.
Afternoon session: PhD students receive a lecture by Dr. Heslenfeld about fMRI measurements. At the end of the day, they will go to a MRI scanner in subgroups, and receive a demonstration of a fMRI scan.

Day 2
Morning session: PhD students will get training by Dr. van der Meij in analyzing a dataset that contains hormonal data. Also, possibly, in subgroups they will visit a hormonal lab where saliva samples are analyzed.
Afternoon session: PhD students will receive a lecture by Dr. Heslenfeld about electrophysiological measurements. They will also possibly receive a live demonstration of a combined EEG, ECG and EMG measurement in the lab.

Literature
To be announced

Participants are kindly requested to bring their own laptop.
