Research Assistants wanted for the Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory!

The Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory investigates brain networks underlying emotion and cognition using EEG, MRI, and other psychophysiological measures. The lab works to understand how functional brain activity is disrupted for clinical problems such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and aggression, as well as how such brain activity be changed through treatment. This work is relevant to students interested in various areas of psychology, such as clinical, cognitive, forensic, physiological, social, and developmental, as well as students with basic science interests in the brain, such as biology, neuroscience, and engineering.
 
Responsibilities:
  • Data collection in Brain Physiology (EEG, MRI) and Peripheral Physiology (skin conductance, heart rate, EMG, startle blink)
  • Signal processing training
  • Statistical data analysis training
  • 6 - 9 hours a week commitment
  • Course credit offered
 
Qualifications
  • No previous experience required
  • 3.5 GPA (within major area OK)
