Senior Thesis and Honors

All Physics majors who pursue research with a faculty member have the opportunity to complete a Senior Thesis. Completing a Senior Thesis is not required for a Bachelor’s degree in Physics but is required for graduation with Honors.

On this page, we provide guidelines for applying to graduate with Honors, applying to complete a Senior Thesis, choosing a thesis research topic, writing the Senior Thesis, and preparing the thesis presentation.

Honors Requirements

Physics majors are granted a Bachelor of Science in Physics with Honors if they satisfy these two requirements beyond the general Physics major requirements.

  • The student completes a Senior Thesis by meeting the deadlines and requirements described in the Senior Thesis guidelines section below. 
  • The student completes course work with an overall GPA of 3.30 or higher, and a GPA of 3.50 or higher in courses required for the Physics major.

The student applies for the Honors Program by completing an Honors Program Application Form by mid-May.  Eligibility is confirmed by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

Senior Thesis Guidelines

  • Students must submit a Senior Thesis Application Form once they identify a research project in consultation with a faculty member with whom they are conducting theoretical, computational, or experimental physics research. The application form is attached to this webpage and is also available from the Student Services Specialist. The application must be submitted by 4 pm on Friday prior to the Thanksgiving break of the academic year in which the student plans to graduate. 
  • Credit for the project is assigned by the research advisor within the framework of PHYSICS 205 , Senior Thesis Research. A minimum of 3 units of PHYSICS 205 must be completed for a letter grade during the student’s Senior year. Work completed in the Senior Thesis program may not be used as a substitute for regular required courses for the Physics major.
  • A written thesis and presentation of the work at its completion are required for the Senior Thesis. The Senior Thesis candidate is required to present the project at the department's Senior Thesis Presentation Program in mid to late May. The expectation is that the student's advisor, second reader, and all other Senior Thesis candidates attend. Students may invite their family and friends as guests. 

Timeline for Completing a Senior Thesis & Applying for Honors in Physics

  • First week of October: Students receive information about Senior Thesis Application via email (sent from the Student Services Specialist).
  • Mid-November, before Thanksgiving break: Senior Thesis Application is due by 4pm on the Friday before Thanksgiving break. No late submissions will be accepted. Students will be notified if their application is approved after Thanksgiving break.
  • First week of April: Students sign up for a date/time to present their Senior Thesis; presentations are scheduled in May. At this point, you should have your thesis title and abstract ready for submission.
  • Students present their Senior Thesis in front of their advisor, second reader, other presenters, and guests. 
  • Students submit the final version of their Senior Thesis shortly after the presentation; the precise deadline will be announced in early May.
  • Students who present their Senior Thesis AND meet the GPA requirements must complete the Honors Program Application by mid-May to graduate with Honors. 

Choosing a thesis topic and writing the thesis

No later than the autumn quarter of your senior year, but preferably earlier, during a summer research position.

No later than winter quarter of your senior year.

When you have completed your senior thesis, you should be an expert on the particular area of research discussed in your thesis. Some projects are independent of the advisor’s research; some projects are a well-defined sub-area within the advisor’s broader research program.

Your thesis advisor, as well as graduate students and/or postdocs with whom you have worked closely, can provide advice. The Hume Center for Writing and Speaking is also a useful resource:  http://undergrad.stanford.edu/tutoring-support/hume-center

Students normally find a Senior Thesis topic and advisor through the Summer Research Program. Other sources are courses such as Physics 59 (Frontiers in Physics Research), faculty web pages and resources on the Undergraduate Research and Independent Projects web page: https://undergrad.stanford.edu/opportunities/research

Broad “review articles” in the field and references therein provide valuable background information. Your advisor and group members should also be able to point you to relevant papers.

You are required to enroll in Physics 205 (Senior Thesis Research) under your advisors’ section during your senior year for a minimum of 3 units. The course must be taken for letter grade. 1 unit = 3 hours of research per week.

No, you cannot earn course credit and get paid for the same work.

An advisor may occasionally have funds to support you during the academic year, but you cannot earn course credit for the same work.

The following links contain information on how to apply for funding during the academic year and during the summer term – Student Grants:  https://undergrad.stanford.edu/opportunities/research/get-funded Physics Summer Research Program:  https://physics.stanford.edu/academics/undergraduate-students/summer-research

The length of the thesis varies, depending on the type of thesis. A more theoretical thesis, perhaps fairly dense with equations, may be shorter than an experimental thesis containing a number of figures showing the experimental setup, plots of the data, fits to the data, etc. Most theses are between 20 and 60 pages long.

Electronic versions of Physics Senior Theses written in 2010 or later are available online here: http://searchworks.stanford.edu/catalog?f[collection][]=ds247vz0452

The thesis should contain the following elements:

  • A title page listing the title, the student author, the primary and secondary readers, and the date.
  • An abstract, which could be on the title page or inside the document.
  • An acknowledgment at the beginning or after the abstract.
  • Table of contents.
  • A body, divided into sections and subsections.
  • A bibliography of references at the end. Include page numbers.

Each table should have a caption above the table and each figure should have a caption below the figure. Include a reference to each table and figure in the text.  If you have a large number of detailed plots, or a very long detailed derivation, consider putting it in an Appendix so that the text flows better.

One-and-a-half spacing is best. It makes it easier to read and easier for your readers to mark up.

Yes, but it must be physics related and you must have a faculty member in Physics as the second reader.

Yes, a literature review should be included.

Your target audience should be students in your major. Other Physics majors should be able to follow the thesis and understand what you did – although they might not follow all the details.

Yes, as long as you include a citation to the publication.

Several Stanford professors have done research based on the results of my research. May I include some of their results because they greatly enrich my overall project or does the thesis have to be 100% on data I took myself? It is definitely OK to include other data as long as you provide credit and appropriate citations.

Preparing the thesis presentation

It is typical to use slides prepared with the presentation software of your choice.

Students should bring their own laptop and any necessary adapters.

  • The   presentation s   are   15 minutes and 5 minutes for questions . The next presenter will be asked to set up at the 20-minute mark.
  • Practice presenting from your laptop in the same room well before the actual presentation. In this way, you can avoid embarrassing delays due to technical problems or missing connectors, etc. Any technical delays will only reduce your speaking time.
  • Make sure you start your presentation with an  accessible  overview. The audience will contain mainly non-experts in the field you are going to discuss. This is often the most difficult aspect of any presentation since you must bring along the non-experts while explaining later technical results and their importance without losing the audience.
  • PRACTICE!! (A good strategy is to do timed 15-minute practice sessions in front of your classmates, especially those who will also be presenting a thesis. Encourage your audience to give you feedback and to ask questions afterward about anything that was not clear.)

Undergraduate Requirements

The undergraduate curriculum allows students to acquire a deep conceptual understanding of fundamental physics through its core requirements. Students then choose one of two options to complete the degree, the Flexible track or the Focus track. Both options lead to the same degree, a Bachelor of Science in Physics. And both options are superb preparation for any student planning on applying to graduate school in Physics.

Students may choose either option at any time in their undergraduate career, but many determine their choice during sophomore year in order to have enough time to craft a program that best suits their individual needs. Each option provides time for exploration through electives.

The Flexible Track

The Flexible track is based on a series of rigorous courses in fundamental physics topics, and its options enable many of our students to complete second majors in other disciplines.

The Flex track requires:

  • 8.03 , 8.04 or 8.041, 8.044 , 18.03 (Differential Equations)
  • 8.21 Physics of Energy or 8.223 Classical Mechanics II (choose one)
  • 8.033 Relativity, 8.05 or 8.051 Quantum Physics II, or 8.20 Introduction to Special Relativity (choose one)
  • 8.13 Experimental Physics (a similarly rigorous lab subject from another department can be substituted with permission, or less frequently, an experimental project or experimentally-oriented externship may substitute be allowed to substitute). Note that 8.13 satisfies the lab requirement that is part of the GIRs.
  • At least one elective Physics subject beyond 8.02

In addition, students in the Flex track complete a group of three related subjects, similar to a concentration, subject to the approval of Flex Major Coordinator Dr. Sean Robinson . This group of subjects is known as a “focus area.” Examples of possible focus areas include, but are not limited to:

  • biology / biophysics
  • computer science / engineering
  • electrical engineering
  • history of science
  • mathematics
  • materials science
  • science teaching
  • quantum physics

The Focused Track

This option—which includes three terms of quantum mechanics, 36 units of laboratory experience, and a thesis—constitutes strong preparation for a career in physics. It is comprised of three required parts: specifically required subjects; restricted electives; and a research thesis.

The Focus track requires:

  • 8.03 , 8.033 , 8.04 or 8.041 , 8.044 , 8.05 or 8.051 , 8.06 , 8.223 , 18.03 (Differential Equations)
  • 8.13 and 8.14 Experimental Physics I and II; note that both 8.13 and 8.14 satisfy the lab requirement that is part of the GIRs.
  • one subject given by the Mathematics Department beyond 18.03 ;
  • two additional subjects given by the Physics Department beyond 8.02 including at least one of the following: 8.07 , 8.08 , 8.09
  • Students should have an idea for a thesis topic by the middle of junior year; many thesis projects grow organically out of UROP projects. A thesis proposal must be submitted by Add Date of senior year, and students must register for units of 8.ThU (Undergraduate Thesis) in the senior year. See the Senior Thesis section below for more details.

Double Major in Physics

A frequent question of undergrads is whether a double major is possible with Physics. It definitely is, and in fact the majority of our undergraduates pursue major studies in Physics and another department, or a minor, or both. Popular second majors for our Physics students include: Mathematics, Computer Science, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Nuclear Science and Engineering.

A second major can only be declared after three terms. Students with two majors must complete the requirements of both departments. More general information about double majoring .

To apply for a double major:

  • Email Dr. Sean Robinson ( [email protected] ), the Physics Flex Plan Coordinator, and make an appointment to discuss how you will meet all the requirements of the Flex major.
  • Fill out the double major petition and submit it by emailing [email protected] or by delivering it to the Academic Programs Office, 4-315, for a signature. Please note that we will not sign your petition until you’ve obtained your advisor’s signature first.
  • After obtaining the necessary signatures, submit the signed petition to the Committee on Curricula ( [email protected] ) to be processed. Once approved, the Physics Undergraduate Program Coordinator will reach out to you with a welcome.

Minor in Physics

The Minor in Physics provides a solid foundation for the pursuit of a broad range of professional activities in science and engineering. The requirements for a minor in Physics are:

  • 18.03 or 18.034, plus
  • at least five Course 8 subjects beyond the General Institute Requirements that constitute at least 57 units.

While subjects completed via transfer credit are eligible to be counted towards a Physics minor, at least half of your minor subjects must be MIT subjects taken while you are enrolled at MIT.

Students thinking about a minor in Physics might also consider the alternative of obtaining a second major in Physics through the Flexible option.

To add a Physics minor, submit a completed Minor Application Form to Physics Academic Administrator Shannon Larkin after obtaining the permission of your academic advisor. Note that students are required to document the completion of the minor in addition to listing the intended courses on the initial application form.

Minor in Astronomy

The minor in Astronomy, offered jointly with the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (EAPS), covers the observational and theoretical foundations of astronomy. The minor requires a selection of seven subjects distributed among five areas:

  • Astronomy, Mathematics, and Physics Required Subjects: 8.03 ; 8.282J/12.402J ; 18.03 or 18.034
  • Astrophysics Choose one: 8.284 or 8.286
  • Planetary Astronomy Choose one: 12.008 , 12.400 , 12.420 , or 12.425
  • Instrumentation and Observations Choose one: 8.287/12.410 , 12.43J , 12.431J , or 12.432J
  • Independent Project in Astronomy Choose one: 8.UR , 8.ThU , 12.UR , 12.ThU , or 12.411

Four of the subjects used to satisfy the requirements for the astronomy minor may not be used to satisfy any other minor or major. For more information, contact Astronomy Minor Coordinator is Prof. Michael McDonald .

Communication Requirement for the Physics Major (CI-M 8)

Each MIT undergraduate must take two subjects within their major that have been designated as communications-intensive (CI-M). CI-Ms teach the specific forms of written, oral, and/or visual communication appropriate to the field’s professional and academic culture. Students may write in teams; prepare and present oral and visual research reports for different audiences; learn audience analysis and peer review; or go through the experience of proposing, writing, and extensively revising a professional journal article. Most students complete their CI-Ms during the junior and senior year.

The Physics Department offers the following CI-Ms for both Flex and Focus students:

  • 8.06 Quantum Physics III
  • 8.13 Experimental Physics I
  • 8.14 Experimental Physics II
  • 8.225J Einstein, Oppenheimer, Feynman: Physics in the 20 th Century
  • 8.226 Forty-three Orders of Magnitude
  • 8.S227 Special Subject: Technical Communication, Scientific Judgment, and Professional Preparation (pilot, spring 2021)
  • 8.287J Observational Techniques of Optical Astronomy

Students occasionally petition to substitute a CI-M from another department in place of one of these subjects; the department may support such a petition if the proposed substitution forms a natural part of the student’s individual program. Petitions are approved by the MIT Subcommittee on the Communications Requirement (SOCR).

Senior Thesis

Research is an integral part of any student’s experience as an MIT Physics major. Students who have had the opportunity to delve deeply into an area of research over time are encouraged to write a Senior Thesis describing their work and their conclusions.

Senior Thesis Submission Dates

  • Senior Thesis Proposal form (PDF) due by Add Date the term before you complete your thesis
  • Senior Thesis Title form (PDF)
  • Candidates on February 2024 degree list: Friday, January 12, 2024
  • Candidates on May 2024 degree list: Friday, May 10, 2024

Senior Thesis Policies

  • All Physics Focus students must write an undergraduate thesis; students on the Physics Flex track may choose to write a thesis, but are not required to.
  • Any Physics Department faculty member or research staff member is an acceptable thesis supervisor.
  • To write a thesis under the supervision of an MIT professor outside the Physics Department, or a non-MIT professor, you must have a departmental faculty member as a co-supervisor. Contact the Academic Programs Office for more information.
  • You must be registered for thesis units (8.THU) in the term you plan to submit your thesis. The standard number of units is 12; a student with an unusual situation may register for up to 24 units, but should discuss with the thesis supervisor why this thesis requires more effort than a standard 12-unit subject.
  • During the term you are enrolled in 8.THU, you may not also conduct a UROP project that contributes or relates to the thesis work, or vice versa (MIT UROP policy).
  • For a list of formatting requirements and details for writing your senior thesis, see the MIT Libraries’ MIT Specifications for Thesis Preparation page , which contains links to several sections on thesis preparation, as well as MIT Thesis FAQs .
  • Abstracts are not required for undergraduate theses.
  • No ProQuest/UMI form is required.
  • Copyright ownership depends on how your research was funded and what equipment was used.  Most likely, MIT will have funded/supplied equipment for your thesis, but be sure to read the policy in detail.
  • Senior Thesis Title form (PDF):  use this template to format your title page.

Required Signatures and Submission Guidelines

Your thesis will be signed by you, your thesis supervisor, and the Associate Head of the Physics Department.  After your thesis supervisor has read your thesis completely, provided feedback or corrections, and approved the final version for submission:

  • Submit your thesis in a PDF attachment via email to [email protected] .
  • Copy your thesis supervisor(s) on the email.
  • Your supervisor then provides a signature via Docusign . 
  • Once this is done, the staff of the Academic Programs Office will be responsible for obtaining the signature of the Associate Head.

Digital Submission Guidelines

  • Do not print OR physically sign and scan your thesis to us. Follow the signing instructions written below.
  • When the final version of your thesis is completed, submit your thesis in a PDF attachment via email to [email protected] .
  • You must copy your thesis supervisor(s) on the email.
  • Once you’ve submitted your thesis and your supervisor has given their approval via Docusign , then the Associate Head will review it.

Each year, a group of faculty members are designated as academic advisors to an incoming cohort of sophomore Physics majors. In July, rising sophomores are provided information about the available advisors and are asked to indicate their top choices, and matches are then made by the Academic Administrator. Students who join the department after this initial set of assignments will then be matched with one of the advisors for the student’s class; these students may make specific requests which will be considered along with the current advising loads of each advisor.

Your advisor can assist with:

  • Course selection and sequencing
  • Changes to subject choices after Registration
  • Academic progress
  • Academic or personal support resources
  • Advice about graduate school in physics or other disciplines
  • Internship and career advice

Our advising program’s goal is for Physics majors to retain their advisor throughout the undergraduate program, but students are welcome to request a change of advisor if circumstances warrant by contacting the Academic Administrator Shannon Larkin .

FAQ for Prospective Undergraduate Students

Does the physics department accept ap credit.

Yes. The Physics Department awards credit for 8.01 to incoming students who score a 5 on both parts of the AP Physics C test. No credit is given for the Physics B test or for a qualifying score on only one part of the Physics C test.

Does the Physics Department grant credit for the International Baccalaureate or G.C.E. “A” Level Exams?

Entering students may receive 8.01 credit for qualifying scores on A-level exams, IB exams, the German Arbitur, and similar tests. For full details on Physics credit awarded for international exams and how to request it, see information on the website of the Office of the First Year.

If I have 8.01 credit already through an exam, do I have to take the Math Diagnostic Exam?

Yes. The Math Diagnostic Exam serves a dual purpose. In addition to providing advice for the appropriate level of Physics I for the majority of entering first-year students who must take a version of 8.01 , Math Diagnostic scores also validate AP credit for Mathematics courses.

How can I receive Physics transfer credit?

Requests for transfer credit for Physics courses taken at other institutions can be made through Physics Academic Administrator Shannon Larkin . Please read our Transfer Credit page for complete details on how to apply for credit. This page also has information on the scheduling of exams and on topics covered.

May I take 8.02 before passing 8.01?

No. All students must receive credit for 8.01 before registering for any version of 8.02. The sole exception to this policy is for second-semester seniors who have not yet completed either 8.01 or 8.02 . A senior who needs to complete both 8.01 and 8.02 in the final term should contact the Academic Administrator, Shannon Larkin .

Can I switch between the various versions of 8.01 or 8.02?

Yes. Students can switch between 8.01 and 8.01L , or 8.011 and 8.012 (as well as between 8.02 and 8.022 ) before Add Date. Instructors of the subject a student wishes to switch into can provide additional information on any written work to be submitted or tests to be taken to facilitate such a change.

Can I take graduate classes as an undergrad?

Yes, many undergrads take graduate courses, but we take prerequisites and appropriate preparation very seriously. Whether you are taking a first-year Physics course or an advanced graduate course, we want to be sure you are set up for success.

Are there any study-abroad programs?

Yes. Most study-abroad opportunities are handled by MIT’s Global Education and Career Development Office . The MISTI program is most specifically aimed towards science and technology initiatives.

Bachelor in Physics

theoretical physics bachelor thesis

How to apply?

The bachelor's program in physics begins in the winter semester, i.e. around mid-October. Applications can be submitted from mid-May to September 15. The prerequisite is a university entrance qualification, e.g. Abitur.

The application itself is done online via the KIT application portal .

The bachelor's program usually lasts 6 semesters. The language of instruction of the program is German.

Physics is a science that lives the synergy of practical/experimental and mathematical/theoretical research in a very unique way. This interaction is a central part of our educational strategy. During our courses each student gets to know both aspects of this close interaction.

With the bachelor thesis one then performs either theory or experimental research in one of the groups of the department.

The key building blocks of the courses are:

studienplan bsc-physik

Experimental physics

In classical experimental physics we deal with natural phenomena that can be described without quantum physics or relativity theory from the experimental side. In our courses on classical experimental physics, you will learn how the laws of nature can be derived from skillful experiments and how theoretical predictions can be confirmed or refuted in experiments. Classical experimental physics covers a wide range of topics from mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and optics and thermodynamics.

Modern experimental physics starts with the key experiments that have led to our current physical world view since the end of the 19th century. You will learn about the structure of nature from elementary particles and atoms and their interaction in molecules and solids and understand the principles of modern experimental tools – from lasers to particle detectors to quantum sensors – which have only become possible through the physics of the 20th century. 


Theoretical physics

  • Classical theoretical physics covers problems not relying on the modern concepts of quantization. In lectures on theoretical mechanics and electrodynamics, you will deal with theories of impressive mathematical elegance that are essential for an understanding of more advanced topics. You will learn how to describe our everyday's world including equilibria of forces or planetary motions, and gain a deep understanding of phenomena such as energy conservation or the origin of electromagnetic waves.
  • Modern theoretical physics has been developing since the early 20th century. Especially in lectures on quantum mechanics you will learn how to master this theory and get familiar with many puzzles of quantum mechanics. Finally, topics in statistical physics of classical or quantum mechanical particles and in-depth lectures on theoretical particle physics or condensed matter theory introduce you to modern research areas.



Mathematics is an enormously important tool in physics. During the first three semesters, you will learn analysis, linear algebra and related topics and  thus have the tools ready to describe physical processes.

There are two options to choose from: Either you take the lecture series " Higher Mathematics ", which is tailored to the usual needs of physics studies, or you attend courses that mathematics students take during their undergraduate studies. Here, formal derivations and rigorous proofs are dealt with in more detail.

Tafel mit mathematischer Formel

Laboratory courses

In the physics laboratory courses , you will conduct your own experiments : You will experience how physics experiments are designed and which measurement techniques are used. You will learn how to operate the measuring instruments, how to document the experiments, how to record measurement data–usually with computers–and how to evaluate them with statistical methods. With the experiments, you will understand physics effects that you have learned about in the lectures from a completely different perspective. We offer three courses in the third, fourth and fifth semesters, in which you will prepare, carry out and evaluate successively more complex experiments.

Praktikum: Labor-Geraet

Computers in physics

Computers are ubiquitous and indispensable tools in physics research. Experiments are controlled by computers and measurement data are electronically recorded, analyzed and graphically displayed. Many theoretical predictions and models are based on numerical or algebraic calculations on computers. 

The courses on computers in physics  of the bachelor study program prepares you for this in the best possible way: You will learn a widely used programming language and a computer algebra system. In practical computer exercises you will use both as tools to work on physical problems. In the courses on experimental and theoretical physics, you will learn about the many possible applications for these tools.


Minor subjects

The non-physics minor subject enables students to acquire basic knowledge from another discipline, e.g. chemistry, electrical engineering and information technology, computer science, economics. There is a relatively broad range of courses offered by the other departments.

This view beyond physics offers valuable points of connection to a self-chosen field of interest, thus broadening professional qualifications.


Bachelor thesis

The bachelor thesis is an essential step towards independent scientific work. Working on a well-defined research topic, you will learn to acquire exciting knowledge and present it in a scientific manner, both written and verbal. You will apply the skills and knowledge you have acquired in the Bachelor's program to research-relevant issues by collecting, evaluating and interpreting relevant information in order to draw scientifically sound conclusions.


The module manual  (sometimes also called module handbook or module guide) describes the bachelor study program in physics in great detail. This includes the qualification objectives, the study plan with all courses and how the program is structured in individual modules. An exemplary graphical representation of the study plan is shown on the right. Information on the legal framework such as the Study and Examination Regulations (SPO) and the Access Statutes for the degree program can be found under Documents and Guidelines .

Department of Physics

William lejon: physics is something you learn throughout your studies.

William will be 24 years old in August, comes from Stockholm and is studying on the Master's programme in theoretical physics at Fysikum. He is currently working on his master's thesis, which he plans to present in June. "The important thing is not that you understand now, tomorrow or even in a week. Physics is something you learn throughout your studies."

William Lejon, masterstudent i teoretisk fysik, Fysikum

William Lejon has completed the bachelor's programme in physics at Fysikum and is now studying the master's programme in theoretical physics.

"I am 23 years old and will be 24 in August. I was born and raised in Stockholm. My family consists of a younger brother (21), mum (60) and dad (68). My interest in physics started when I was 6-7 years old and read about the planets in the solar system."

Master's thesis on neutron scattering and spallation

The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a research facility under construction in Lund. ESS will initially house 15 different science instruments based on neutron scattering after spallation. Spallation is the process by which the atomic nuclei of a heavy metal become unstable and emit neutrons after being bombarded with protons. HIBEAM-NNBAR is a proposed two-stage programme of experiments designed to search for neutrons that convert to antineutrons and/or sterile neutrons. 

William is currently working on his master's thesis which he plans to present in June. "My thesis is about AI applications for the HIBEAM and NNBAR experiments. My studies have been hard but very rewarding. It was extra hard to study during covid."

Williams' recommendations to other physics students

"They can take it easy. Even if you sit in a lecture and feel like you don't understand, it's okay. The important thing is not that you understand now, or tomorrow, or even in a week. Physics is something you learn throughout your studies and you will be fine as long as you keep trying."

Abstract reasoning, the ability to solve complex problems by taking away the unnecessary

details (Clement et al., 2007) in order to derive a rule used in solving similar, novel tasks, is

an essential intelligent behaviour that AI deep learning models are generally not yet capable

of yet appears early on in humans. This thesis investigates whether the Emergent Symbol

Binding Network (ESBN; Webb et al., 2021) is a possible candidate for studying the

mechanisms that underlie how abstract visual reasoning (AVCR) ages and develops in

humans. By manipulating ESBN’s architecture when performing two AVR tasks – identity

rules and distribution-of-three - we tested if it could simulate two main developmental

phenomena, i.e. – that higher working memory capacity and improved inhibition control

promote AVR development. Results showed the ESBN failed to simulate the working

memory phenomenon, while the inhibition control phenomenon could not be tested due to the

model’s near-perfect task accuracy. This makes the ESBN an inadequate model for explaining

AVR development, a finding further research should corroborate.
