Undergraduate Neuroscience Research Opportunities

Stanford undergraduates are encouraged to explore the wide variety of neuroscience research opportunities available on campus, including those posted here (all by labs actively seeking undergraduate research assistants). Stanford faculty seeking research assistants are invited to submit opportunities for undergraduates. For help, please contact Elise Kleeman.

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 plant compounds affect animal central nervous system and behavior.
We're a diverse group of physicians, psychologists, researchers and students dedicated to discovering the nature of emotion and resilience in children to help treat youth suffering from major mood disorders or those at risk of developing these conditions.
We want to understand how the brain controls movement and recovers from injury.
We want to understand the neuronal mechanisms underlying sensory perception.
We want to understand how the brain gives rise to self-control.
We are interested in understanding the structural basis of neurodegenerative diseases at subcellular and macromolecular level.
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.
