Special Opportunities

Independent Studies

Neuroscience students are encouraged to perform independent research in one of the many active labs on campus. In addition, opportunities exist to perform research or get clinical experience at the University of Connecticut Health Center, Hartford Hospital, the Institute of Living and Connecticut Children's Medical Center.  In particular, many students do research at the Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center using EEG and fMRI measures.  Many of our students present their work at professional conferences and publish in prestigious journals.

Summer Research Assistantships

A limited number of positions are made available for students to work on campus over the summer as part of the ongoing, year-round activity in Trinity's laboratories. Read "Prospective Memory" from the Fall 2011 Trinity Reporter about a summer research assistantship.

Senior Honors Thesis Projects

Many neuroscience majors choose to do a senior honors thesis. This is a year-long independent research project that often leads to conference presentations or publications.  All thesis students present their work as an oral presentation and as a poster at the science symposium.
