The UC Davis ASPIRE program, based in the Center for Mind and Brain, jump-starts undergraduate research by pairing first and second year students with faculty mentors. Valerie Klein’s ASPIRE research was recently featured in the UC Davis Letters and Sciences news.
Valerie Klein will present research investigating inter-brain synchrony and its relationship with collaborative task performance at this year’s ASPIRE Symposium! In this study, novel participant pairs complete a naturalistic Augmented Reality Tangram task while wearing EEG headsets. Results show that increased pairwise inter-brain synchrony is associated with increased task performance.
The symposium (open to the public) begins at 5:30pm at the Center for Mind and Brain (267 Cousteau Pl, Davis, CA 95618). The full program includes a keynote by Dr. Seth Frey, student lectures, and poster presentations.
