The Language and Brain lab typically has a few positions come available each semester for UConn undergraduates to work in the lab as research assistants. These students usually register for three credits of COGS 3589, PSYCH 3889, or SLHS 3299 (Independent Study) and spend about an average of 10 hours per week working in the lab.
Undergraduate research assistants generally assist the PI and graduate students with experiment preparation and data collection. Some students, especially honors students or University Scholars, develop their own research project. Undergraduates typically work on behavioral or eyetracking experiments and have the opportunity to develop poster presentations on those projects.
