Get involved: registered replication project on “professor priming”

Registered replication reports are a new initiative sponsored by the APS where labs around the world collaborate to conduct a large-scale, precise replication of an important finding in psychology.  The really cool thing about these projects is that they are perfect for undergraduate researchers.  A lead lab develops the protocol and training materials that will ensure each lab replicates the desired protocol precisely.  Interested labs apply to take part and commit to collecting a sample of a specific size within a certain time frame.

Here is a call to participate in an RRP that will examine “professor priming” (we’re not going to explain what that is, click the link to find out).  Hurry, the deadline for applying to participate is September 9.

“Professor Priming” Focus of APS Registered Replication Report Project


I'm a teacher, researcher, and gadfly of neuroscience. My research interests are in the neural basis of learning and memory, the history of neuroscience, computational neuroscience, bibliometrics, and the philosophy of science. I teach courses in neuroscience, statistics, research methods, learning and memory, and happiness. In my spare time I'm usually tinkering with computers, writing programs, or playing ice hockey.
