This project is left fairly open-ended for a reason: I want you to be creative in your content, application, and presentation. You've got a chance to have fun with a topic you are REALLY interested in, so pick something COOL!
If you're really struggling for ideas, some possible sources of inspiration:
- American Psychological Association's topics database. You'll find good info on the APA's webpage about these topics, and that means there is a robust research literature behind them.
- The Association for Psychological Science also has a webpage with many links to "psychology in the news" and current interest areas in psych research.
- Like neuroscience/biopsych? The Society for Neuroscience may be a helpful place to start. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for their feed on neuroscience in the news, if you want some "current" hot topics in neuro.
