(#402) Transitional Neuroscience Research
For driven high school/undergraduate students, SkoolMentor is offering a unique 8 week opportunity to conduct remote research in Transitional neuroscience and mental health with a research scientist affiliated with a mental health hospital. The Mentor has extensive research experience in neuroscience, Transitional research in various mental health disorders.
The topics of research could be learning about significance of brain imaging and understanding the brain scans by exploring brain regions and their function, computational analysis of effect of gene alternations on mental health, exploring the current genetic biomarkers and backing up their findings with a statistical model. The topics will be focused on multiple mental health disorders and student will have the flexibility to select the topic and the disorder that interest them the most.
On the completion of the project the student will know how to search scientific literature, ask a precise research question, do data analysis and make a statistically informed inference. They will have hands-on experience about presenting their research to the scientific community and successfully address the questions raised. Additionally, depending on the project they choose they will know how to identify the brain regions and what it's function is, learn new concepts of genetics and learn how to leverage multiple computational software.
The researcher has served as a mentor to multiple doctors interested in research, PhD students and has trained short-term students in conducting research in mental health. Throughout the 8-weeks program the mentor will guide the student and will provide relevant templates to present the research in a systematic manner. This will help the student to gain visibility and efforts can be made (and if possible) to publish/present the findings on reputed platforms.
This is an excellent opportunity for students who are curious, driven, want to contribute to patient-oriented research and wish to learn cutting-edge web-based tools in mental health research.
Opportunities such as these are also a great way for students to showcase the passion for STEM and stand out in college applications.
The mentoring happens once a week for 8 weeks and is for 1 hour duration. However, it is not limited to once a week and if needed extra time can be devoted to the student.
The students need to put in about 6-7 hours per week on their own doing the research.
There are no prerequisites for applying to this program. The student is just required to be interested in mental health and neuroscience and be willing to put in the expected hours of work.
