In the B.E.A.R. Lab, we are interested in examining factors at school and at home that help children develop cognition and self-regulation. Interested in participating or learning more? Let us know!
Stress and Learning Study
College is a challenging experience for most students, however students of color must often contend with race-based stressors in addition to academic stress and social stressors with family and friends. The impact of race-based stressors is not always directly observable as their effects are often described as "getting under the skin." This study will use electroencephalogram (EEG) to complement existing behavioral measures and assess how race-based stressors are impacting college students' cognition.
We are currently recruiting undergraduate research assistants (RA's) who would like to help out with data collection during the Fall 2021 quarter at UCLA. Prospective RA's must be available for training during August and September 2021 at UCLA. Course credit will be available for Fall 2021 as will the option to stay on for this project and others in our lab after Fall 2021. Prospective RA's should email us with a brief statement of intent, a CV/Resume, and an unofficial transcript to bearlab (at) ucla (dot) edu.
