Recently, I learned of my eligibility for honors research in the psychology department at Oberlin. I have decided to finally merge my interests in cognition, statistical modeling, and computer science by conducting research utilizing convolutional neural networks (CNNs). My goal for the Spring semester is to conduct a thorough review of the literature around empirical applications of neural networks in psychological research with my advisors, Professors Paul Thibodeau and Nancy Darling, as well as begin the process of coding my first CNNs in Python, the programming language I have selected for this research. Expect additional updates after the literature review is complete!!
