Are you planning on doing research in COBE Lab, and would you like to know more about the approval process and procedures? Do you already have approval, but would like to run your experiments more efficiently? Then this course may be for you and/or your RA's

Info about event


Wednesday 23 January 2019,  at 10:00 - 12:00


Lab 1F, building 2635, Fuglsangs Allé 20, 8210 Aarhus V


Cognition and Behavior Lab

This is a short, introductory course designed to give researchers and research assistants the tools to run experiments efficiently in COBE Lab. The course will offer insights into the process of getting applications approved, introductions to our various systems as well as the resources and assistance we provide, tips on recruiting and booking, and much more.

The course is split into two parts. Part one deals largely with the application process and is mainly aimed at researchers who have not yet applied do research in the lab. Part two deals with the problems and questions that arise when you are running an experiment, and is mainly aimed at researchers who are already doing work in the lab or will soon. You may join either or both parts of the course as you see fit. There will be a coffee break at approximately 10:50 to allow for leaving or entering. Note that the course only runs a maximum of four times a year, so if you are considering doing research in COBE Lab, you may want to join both parts to be as prepared as possible. Researchers who have already been through the application process may also want to join part one to be updated on the current procedures.

There will be time for questions and discussion in both parts.
