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.

Our team is using deep learning to improve medical imaging.
The Druckmann lab wants to discover how behavior is connected to the patterns of activity in the brain’s neurons and how behavior is influenced by the way neurons connect and communicate with each other.
Our lab seeks to understand distributed computations and neural circuits that drive dynamic, complex behavior, mainly focusing social interactions.
We investigate the mechanisms of human neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
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.
Development of novel instrumentation and computational algorithms for visualization and quantification of molecular pathways of neurological disease, and translation of these new tools into clinical or preclinical research studies of these disorders.
We are interested in how the human nervous system develops and identifying the mechanisms of neuropsychiatric disorders.
The Stanford Brain Performance Center is a scientific research center that examines the limits of brain performance, advances the neuroscience of prediction in childhood, injury recovery, and aging, and delivers state-of-the-science care.
