Students are strongly encouraged to become involved in research at Concordia University Chicago. Students often have their first taste of psychological science as research participants in General Psychology. As a result of their participation, students regularly comment that they are better able to grasp aspects of research, design, and statistics, and that the experience complements their reading and classroom learning. Some students remark that they enjoy helping classmates and faculty conduct research projects.

How does sleep quality affect cognition?
Have you ever wondered if a bad night’s sleep could make it harder to think? Help us answer that question by participating in our study. During the study we will first measure how well you slept last night. Then you’ll complete two simple and fun cognitive tasks. Results of our study will be made available to participants once all of our data are collected. This study takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
