With many shifts happening in the research landscape, now is the perfect time to learn or perfect new software skills! Inkscape is a free software similar to Adobe Illustrator that can be used to edit figures and create polished documents of any size. This hands-on workshop will cover the basics of image file types, introduce the Inkscape interface, and walk through the tools and functions that you will need for making figures and posters.
Please register below.
Note: Participants should install the latest version of Inkscape and make sure it is working before attending. If you need help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Workshop leader Anastasia Sares earned her PhD from McGill University, studying the neural underpinnings of stuttering through behavior and fMRI. She is broadly interested in auditory processing in the brain, especially for complex phenomena like language and music, and also has a passion for science communication.
When: Wednesday, June 3, 3:00pm
Where: Online by Zoom – a link will be sent in advance to registered participants.

Title: Stimulating speech: Auditory-motor interactions in production and perception
In my lab, we use non-invasive brain stimulation to explore auditory-motor interactions during speech perception and speech production. I will describe how transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) works and provide a number of examples of how we have used this method in combination with behaviour and other measures of brain function.

Title: The timing of the cognitive processes underlying bilingualism and the perception of foreign accents: Evidence from mouse tracking
The mouse-tracking paradigm allows researchers to better understand how cognitive processes unfold over time by recording participants’ responses using a computer mouse. In this talk, I will present a diverse set of cognitive experiments in which I used the mouse-tracking paradigm for data collection. Read More

Title: Creating and analyzing mouse-tracking experiments
The goal of this four-hour workshop is to create and analyze mouse-tracking experiments. During the first half of the workshop, participants will become familiar with the computer software MouseTracker (download here – only works on Windows os). Read More
