Appraising and accelerating theoretical progress in memory modification research with meta-science, Bayesian statistics, and an open-collaborative approach.

Project description

Memory modification processes with Bayesian statistics

The focus of psychology and neuroscience is on understanding the processes of memory formation, leading to novel cognitive therapies and interventions based on memory modifications. However, theoretical studies in this field currently lack a much-needed reliability and have a low-level of diagnosticity. The predominant use of frequentist statistics limits informative statistical inferences. The EU-funded AAT project will support an individual fellowship in the systematic appraisal of the memory modification study with the use of Bayesian statistics based on open science rules to achieve the best theoretical progress. A training in transferable, methodological skills and strong collaboration with European experts will help the scientist obtain expertise in areas intersecting experimental psychology and meta-research.
