The UCI Neurorehabilitation Laboratory offers exciting research opportunities for undergraduate students interested in research. In fact, students are a vital part of the UCI Neurorehabilitation team.
Undergraduate students are expected to be involved in many aspects of the research process. Activities include assisting with recruitment of subjects to participate in research studies, preparing study recruitment and questionnaire packets, completing data entry, performing MRI, EEG, and TMS neuroimaging data analysis using software such as Matlab, FSL, and SPM, being involved in the research collaboration with UCI Neurorehabilitation Laboratory associates for various projects, and attending weekly lab meetings with the principle investigators and research staff.
The UCI Neurorehabilitation Laboratory allows undergraduate students to enroll in the Bio199 independent research program under the mentorship of Dr. Steve Cramer. This program allows students the ability to receive course credit for the time spent in the lab. Additionally, students also have the opportunity to conduct independent research, apply for funding and ultimately present their findings through research symposia. Previous undergraduates have successfully funded their research projects and presented their findings in a variety of settings, including local and national scientific conferences.
To join the UCI Neurorehabilitation Laboratory as a volunteer researcher, a copy of students transcripts are required, as well as an initial interview process with research staff. For more information or to inquire about available positions, please contact us.
