Undergraduate Neuroscience Research Opportunities
We study the neural circuitry and mechanisms underlying sleep and arousal.
We want to advance understanding of how the brain develops in childhood, particularly in relation to visual abilities that emerge as babies interact with the world after birth and as kids start learning how to read and write in school.
The Educational Neuroscience Initiative brings together elementary school education and neuroscience research to understand how the brain changes with learning.
Our laboratory works to understand basic mechanisms of brain trauma.
We aim to understand the role of glial cells in the nervous system.
We want to understand how the brain gives rise to self-control.
We want to understand how the sensory brain state changes just before and during epileptic seizures.
Our goal is to make quantitative links between cortical activity measured in humans with perceptual behavior.
We have identified hair biomarkers (e.g., cortisol and oxytocin) for investigating cumulative stress in young children and their parents, but don't know their values among normal, healthy individuals.
We study mechanisms of early brain and language development in order to develop therapies that can improve learning outcomes in children at risk for neurodevelopmental disabilities.
