Part-time RA positions

Part-time research opportunities (volunteer, for course credit, or hourly payment) are available for research during summer and throughout the semester for undergraduate students. Projects range from online experiments on studying the cognitive architecture of typing behavior in humans to working with data from individuals with brain damage to better understand how the brain processes language.
