individual differences in reasoning and decision making, also related to dual processing – perhaps you could relate to that. Research interests: Quantitative, Empirical in nature My research interests are in higher mental processes and primarily in thinking, judgement and decision-making (JDM), and their linguistic aspects. I would be happy to supervise projects relating to these research areas, and in particular issues relating to factors that either facilitate or hinder reasoning and JDM, and individual differences in reasoning and JDM, especially with dual processing aspects. These can be applied but do not have to be. There are plenty of classic tasks in these areas

First, write a simple hypothesis. State your hypothesis in such a way that it could be tested. Second, describe how you might use naturalistic observation, case studies, survey research, and correlational research to help prove/disprove your hypothesis. Note: When you describe your correlational research, include the two variables you will be examining and the type of relationship you project to exist between the two variables (i.e., positive or negative correlation).

Define Emotion and say what develops in emotional development. Are other mental systems involved? What drives the process? Define emotion. Attempt some form of definition. Be careful about dictionary definitions, although they can be useful. You may look to define it in a fashion by looking at what some consider to be its components. (A major component of the question.) What develops in emotional development? So, what is the starting point? What is the origin? Note competing theories of emotions. How might they differ in answering this part of the question? (Hint. What develops and what does not develop?)

individual differences in reasoning and decision making, also related to dual processing – perhaps you could relate to that.

Research interests:
Quantitative, Empirical in nature

My research interests are in higher mental processes and primarily in thinking, judgement and decision-making (JDM), and their linguistic aspects. I would be happy to supervise projects relating to these research areas, and in particular issues relating to factors that either facilitate or hinder reasoning and JDM, and individual differences in reasoning and JDM, especially with dual processing aspects. These can be applied but do not have to be. There are plenty of classic tasks in these areas (e.g. belief bias, conjunction fallacy, etc.) which are suitable for final year projects. Projects should be quantitative and experimental, or quasi-experimental (that is, you can combine experimental paradigms with measures of individual differences). I will not supervise purely questionnaire design, or qualitative work.
There is also a lot of work on individual differences in reasoning and decision making, also related to dual processing – perhaps you could relate to that.
