Undergraduate Neuroscience Research Opportunities
We study mechanisms for development and prevention of injury-induced and genetic epilepsies.
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.
We want to develop wearable biosensors for mental illness patients.
We study how neurons communicate with each other at synapses.
We evaluate the utility of focused ultrasound application on the peripheral nervous system for acute and/or chronic pain.
We study variation across populations to understand human health and disease, using genomic and proteomic data.
We’re exploring advances in neuromodulation for mental health disorders and obesity, from mouse to human.
We aim to develop precision gene-editing technology with machine learning to study and treat neural-immune diseases, with particular interest in neuro-degeneration (AD/PD).
The Poston Lab seeks to understand the mechanisms underlying cognitive impairment and dementia in patients with Parkinson's disease.
We want to understand how nutrition influences brain development and social behavior.
