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 goal is to understand how to regenerate the visual system and how internal states (autonomic arousal, anxiety etc) are impacted by vision and respiration.
We investigate mechanisms and treatments for hearing loss in infectious diseases of the ear
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.
We want to understand how the neural retina is formed during development and how to protect the retina from disease-induced damages.
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.
Research topics: We want to understand the molecular details of electrical signaling in the brain.
We investigate the mechanisms of human neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
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.
