The Brain, Emotion and Education (BEE) Lab at the Department of Educational Psychology is looking for research assistants interested in social and affective neuroscience in children. In collaboration with the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior (CB3), our research seeks to explore the dynamics of brain-environment interaction in bullying behavior. Starting from Fall 2017, we will begin to examine the structural and functional brain alterations, as well as pro-inflammatory cytokine levels of bully perpetrators, compared to non-bullies. Research assistants will be expected to help with recruitment of participants, clinical assessments, and data collection (including magnetic resonance imaging data). If necessary, additional training will be provided in data analysis related to neuroimaging and biological data. This is a great opportunity for those pursuing degrees related to psychology, neuroscience, education and related fields. Please contact me if you are interested.
