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 study the neural circuitry and mechanisms underlying sleep and arousal.
We study how neuronal circuits are built during development and how their architecture enables specific functions in adults.
Our lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying the development and regeneration of these sensory hair cells.
Our lab researches new treatments for blinding diseases (glaucoma, retinal degeneration)
We study how neurons communicate with each other at synapses.
We aim to understand behaviourally diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorders by taking a "genetics first" approach
We aim to forge new, scientifically-based strategies to address the full spectrum of women’s mental health issues,
Our lab is finding new ways to regenerate injured motor nerves after injury.
The Educational Neuroscience Initiative brings together elementary school education and neuroscience research to understand how children’s brains change with learning.
We aim to decipher the neural mechanisms underlying psychiatric conditions of stress, sleep disturbances, and substance use.
