The Peelle Lab is currently accepting undergraduate volunteers interested in gaining research experience. We are a brand new cognitive neuroscience lab in the Department of Otolaryngology, on the medical campus. Our research is focused on how the brain understands speech. To study this question we make use of both behavioral tests and neuroimaging tools such as structural and functional MRI. There are openings for several undergraduate researchers for Spring 2013. Background is not so important—most volunteers come from psychology, biomedical engineering, biology, linguistics, or computer science. Being independently motivated and excited about research, on the other hand, is critical! Exceptional students may have the opportunity to design their own research projects.
