The participant I had scheduled for this evening did end up having to cancel, which I was expecting. I was still able to come into the lab though to turn in my keys and make sure that all of the materials for the SRF study are in their place and ready for the next bunch of undergraduates who will be working on the self regulation study.
I have had a great experience working at the Carlson Lab. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to work on a study and conduct research sessions. I have learned so much over my year working here, and I'm sure it will all be very useful as I go on to conduct research in graduate school. Looking back, I'm really glad that I chose the Carlson-Zelazo lab to do my directed research. I think that I got a really great experience because I was able to directly participate in the research and do a lot more than just data entry. I have learned a lot about child development and executive functioning. The knowledge I have gained has already been useful in my classes and I'm looking forward to putting the knowledge to use in my future as a Speech Language Pathologist working with children!
