for students

We are always looking for responsible undergraduate students to assist with our research. We offer opportunities to work with child and adult participants, enter and analyze data, and assist in participant recruitment. Becoming a part of our lab will give you exposure to the processes that fuel Psychological Science!

Our broad project affords URAs a variety of experiences and cater to interests ranging from neuropsychology and electrophysiology to behavioral observation and clinical evaluations. You'll also learn the day to day procedures that keep labs like ours afloat!
