Umbra students to help with a project that will look at how cultural differences can influence the way we process information.
Umbra to participate in Joint Research Project with the University of Perugia and the University for Foreigners
The project will look at how cultural differences can influence the way we process information and it will involve students from China, Italy and the U.S. The research team will use a group of Umbra volunteers and they will fill out a computer-based questionnaire as part of the project. Umbra students who participate will learn more about how methods of reasoning can differ significantly across cultures. The research team includes professors from the Psychology department at both universities.
The research team will also use an Umbra student intern who will take part in the preparation of materials, participate in the execution of the experiment and in the analysis of the data.
