Clinical Psychology

The Clinical Psychology community explores research related to mental illness/disorders, mental health treatment, and psychopathology of individuals across the lifespan. Clinical psychology is interdisciplinary and can intersect with various fields such as neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and social psychology. We encourage interns to dive into research that they have particular interest in (e.g., child psychopathology), share their findings, and collaborate with other interns. This internship is designed to motivate independent research, gain research skills such as analysis and interpretation, and work towards conducting research. 1Cademy allows interns to present their research findings, gain feedback from other interns, and learn how to communicate their findings in a concise and articulate manner.

Create an account and Schedule for our knowledge representation test.

One of the most important aspects of 1Cademy is its unique knowledge representation format. To become a researcher on 1Cademy, you should first engage in one of our ongoing research projects, as a participant. In the project, randomly chosen for you, we will test which type of knowledge representation format works better for your reading comprehension, short-term learning, and long-term learning. This will not only help us improve the design of 1Cademy, but along the way, you will get experience about how to use 1Cademy. For this purpose, you should create an account on our research website and specify your availabilities for three sessions with our UX researchers. In the first session, they will ask you to read two short passages and answer some questions about those passages. This will take an hour. The second and third sessions will be only for 30 minutes each and follow a similar format. Note that it is necessary to complete the second and third sessions, exactly three and seven days after the first session. So, please carefully specify your availability on our research website.
