Reading Group on Research in Mind, Brain, and Education





This reading group aims to gain an in-depth understanding of topics related to current research in the Mind, Brain, and Education field.

It is recommended that students watch lectures (synchronously or recordings) presented as part of the MBE seminar, HT117, to complement the in-class reading-group discussions. Students will present on relevant topics throughout the semester.

Five methodological domains will be addressed in the course: Clinical/educational, Experimental, Neuroimaging, Qualitative, and Computational.

The course will consist of three parts: 1) Monthly lectures by prominent researchers who utilize these methods in their research;  2) Monthly deeper-dive lectures and class-discussions to address the challenges and...
