1) "the online lab": Using the Internet as a research method
2) Mapforaging: Combining Behavioral Ecology and Visual Search
3) Temporal and spatial resolution of Visual Attention

Reflections:
Studying NCP means to get prepared for a scientific career. While the focus lies on Visual Attention and it's neighbouring fields, the training covers all common research methods in neuroscience (theoretical and practical application), as well as scientific writing and programming courses. You are able to pursue your interests through multiple research projects of your choice - including two 8 week projects in the semester breaks. So anyone who is interested in Visual Attention should consider joining the next NCP cohort and it's great supervisors and lecturers at the LMU.
