My first secondment is taking part in Castellón, under the supervision of my thesis director, Azucena García Palacios. I am also working with Víctor Costumeros and Jon Andoni Duñabeitia in the Project.
The planned six months of stay will be split in two, three months from April 2019 to July 2019, and in all likelihood, Spring of 2020.
I started the secondment with a wide idea of the plan we were following regarding the experiment, which involves physiological measures such as eye-tracking and skin conductance. Therefore, the first thing I had to do was to learn how to use the eye-tracker and the apparatus of electrodermal activity. After that, we conducted a pilot study to check if everything worked and to adjust a few changes in the procedure. Now I am recruiting the participants to start the experiment. I can only say good things about the staff in this department, even if they know that you are staying for a short period they include you in everything and make you feel like a member from the first day. They are also very willing to help with anything and show interest in your Project.
