Independent research experiences offer students a taste of laboratory research. Students have an opportunity to transform knowledge learned in the classroom into tangible skills and to experience science as an evolving truth. Under the supervision of Neuroscience faculty, students develop valuable scientific techniques and problem solving skills while learning to function independently in a laboratory setting.
Students can work in a laboratory setting through several mechanisms. Interested students should do online research and read faculty and lab web pages to get a sense of the kind of research being done on campus. They should then read recent articles from those labs they think they are most interested in. Inquiries for laboratory research can be made directly to faculty. Undergraduates pursuing a BS or honors in Neuroscience will be required to complete experimental research within a laboratory setting.
