July 15th, 2010
A pretty normal day, we went to the lab after our morning meeting and were given an article to read. It was pretty interesting, all about change blindness and the studies that have been done on it. It also included right and wrong inductions. After that Octavia started the paperwork for our final project. It was especially tiresome because the people we would be working on were juuusssttt shy of 18, therefore technically kids. We had to make up permission slips for their parents to sign along with the safety forms that were required. Needless to say all this paper work made me wonder how many people got turned away from experiments because it was to much. Anyway after we finished our work Nate managed to finish up the heat maps. After lunch we reviewed our article and went out on a search for more participants. At the meeting the article was not discussed as much as the professors talked about what they did and why they were all connected. It was extremely interesting and the meeting itself flew by very quickly. At the end of the day we met up with more participants and made them take surveys and permission slips home.
