Providing student access to independent human neuroscience research using MRI brain imaging.
Department of Psychology
UW has a large and outstanding research program in human neuroscience investigating research questions in almost every domain of human neuroscience, including vision, audition, attention, language, reading, motor, executive control, memory and emotional regulation. UW has leading researchers whose work contributes to our understanding and treatment of a variety of disorders including ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Alzheimer’s and depression.
Over 20 faculty members, distributed across 9 departments and institutes, provide training in neuroimaging to approximately 40 undergraduates and 100 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers each year.
One of the most advanced techniques for neuroscience research is MRI. The new UW Center for Human Neuroscience (CHN) will provide a state-of-the-art MRI scanner for human neuroimaging research.
This proposal requests funding to support independent research using the new MRI scanner for graduate and undergraduate students. This will be done by providing a pool of funded MRI scanner hours that will be allocated by a student-run CHN-STF committee. The CHN will be a central hub for student training in neuroscience across UW, and will support the research of students with projects funded by the CHN-STF committee.
