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.

Research topics: We study biological predictors of psychopathology and mood disorders across adolescence.
We study the biology of social functioning in animal models and in patients with social impairments.
We study vision loss due to hypoxic-ischemic insult to the brain, including the optic nerve and retina, in order to identify effective ways to restore vision.
The goal of our research is to understand the algorithms used by the brain to implement learning.
We want to understand how the neural retina is formed during development and how to protect the retina from disease-induced damages.
Research topics: We want to understand the brain circuitry underlying addiction and aggression
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.
We aim to map the development of human visual cortex and visual perception.
We seek to understand the role in disease played by a class of genes called long noncoding RNAs
We want to understand the molecular details of electrical signaling in the brain.
