Students who wish to work in a laboratory, either as a volunteer or for credit, should contact the faculty member directly. If taken for credit, students should arrange to enroll in the faculty member's section of NSCI 400, Research in Neuroscience. Enrollment occurs during Registration or during Add/Drop at the beginning of the semester. NSCI 400 may be taken for 1, 2, or 3 credits in a given semester or in different semesters. Completing a total of 3 credits of NSCI 400 may count toward one Group C elective for the major. Undergraduate students who wish to conduct research should consult two web pages on our site: Meetings and Undergraduate Research Journals and Research Funding and Awards.
In addition to research opportunities in their laboratories, our faculty sponsor an afternoon Neuroscience symposium once a year. These symposia feature experts, student poster presentations, and a keynote address. For articles about past symposia, please visit our listing of News stories.
