Remembering novel visual information

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Sunday, March 17, 2019
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Working memory (WM) theories describe processes engaged when thinking, including temporarily holding information in mind and using that information. We currently understand how verbal information (e.g., new sequences of words) is briefly remembered better than we understand how visual information (e.g., abstract patterns of colours or shapes, sequences of spatial locations) is remembered. The successful candidate shall investigate how visual information is temporarily remembered, possibly making use of eye movement patterns and pupillometry, and behavioural dual-task interference manipulations. The candidate shall aim to apply new findings about remembering visual materials to compare models of WM and suggest ways of better specifying WM models.

Funding Notes

The studentship will commence in October 2019 and will cover your tuition fees (at UK/EU level) as well as a maintenance grant. In 2018-19 the maintenance grant for full-time students was £14,777 per annum. As well as tuition fees and a maintenance grant, all School of Psychology students receive conference and participant money (approx. £2250 for the duration of the studentship). They also receive a computer and office space, additional funding for their research, and access to courses offered by the University’s Doctoral Academy and become members of the University Doctoral Academy.

References

Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals, and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.

As only one studentship is available and a very high standard of applications is typically received, the successful applicant is likely to have a very good first degree (a First or Upper Second class BSc Honours or equivalent) and/or be distinguished by having relevant research experience.
