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.

We want to understand how nutrition influences brain development and social behavior.
We want to understanding the impact of early Alzheimer's disease on cognitive aging.
We want to discover causes and to find cures for eye and brain diseases.
We aim to alleviate suffering in youth with chronic pain via targeted assessment, treatment intervention, and experimental and neuroimaging methods to gain a mechanistic understanding of psychological processes in children with chronic pain and their pare
We study how glial cells sculpt neural circuits and how disruptions in these processes contribute to neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
We investigate how differences in the brain relate to symptom presentation in children with autism spectrum disorder and develop biomarkers and new treatments for the core symptoms.
We want to understand the role of lysosome in brain homeostasis
We investigate mechanisms and treatments for hearing loss in infectious diseases of the ear
We aim to predict, prevent, and alleviate pain through science, education, and compassion.
Our goal is to understand how to regenerate the visual system and how internal states (autonomic arousal, anxiety etc) are impacted by vision and respiration.
