Types of Research Experiences Available
RAs in the Brain and Machine Lab will assist with the lab's research, which uses the "brain wave" technique to study how language works in the human brain in real time. As an RA, you will learn to prepare human subjects for the brain wave procedure, monitor subjects during the procedure, work with the brain wave apparatus, and do some simple processing of the brain wave data. This position is suitable for undergraduates with an interest in language or human neuroscience, who want to get more experience working in a research laboratory. A time commitment of 8 hours / week is required, and students who can commit to at least 2 semesters in the lab will be given preference.
No particular experience is necessary-- you will be taught all the skills you need to work in the lab. However, you must be willing to work with children.
