We are currently accepting UROPs for the Fall 2019 semester.
An example project in our laboratory:
Using a combination of theoretical and computational modeling, behavioral experiments, as well as optical and electrophysiological neural recordings, students will contribute to our mission of understanding how the biophysical features of neurons give rise the remarkable processing power of the mammalian brain. This project involves the design, day-to-day operation, and analysis of a complex cognitive task, and will lead to the analysis of a large, high dimensional dataset.
Prerequisites: minimum time commitment of 12 hours per week. If this project is of interest, please contact Jakob Voigts (jvoigts at mit.edu).
If another research direction in our laboratory is more appealing, please contact Mark directly.
