Undergraduate Research on Personality, Mood, and Decision-Making
Our lab studies learning, decision-making, and emotion in those with and without symptoms of personality disorders. Our research investigates abnormalities underlying borderline personality disorder and its development during adolescence and early adulthood. To study these topics, we use a variety of techniques including clinical interviewing, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), computational modeling, physiological recording, and diverse behavioral methods.
We offer a variety of opportunities for students interested in clinical psychology, neuroscience, and personality research. Common tasks for this position include running participants through experimental sessions, conducting clinical interviews, participant recruitment and communications, data entry and data management, quality-checking brain images, preparing study materials, and more. Additionally, all RAs will attend lab meetings. Preference is given to undergraduate students who can commit to working at least 2 semesters in the lab. We are eager to recruit highly motivated students interested in psychopathology research, neuroscience, and/or statistical methods.
