Our current research program is focused on neurodevelopment in both healthy controls and individuals with psychotic and mood disorders. We use neuropsychological tests, neuroimaging, and clinical evaluations to understand how cognition and decision making deficits change during adolescence. Volunteers would participate in data entry, data organization, administrative tasks, and depending on their level of comfort with computers potentially with processing of MRI data. This is a great opportunity to learn about all the phases of the research project from start to finish. The ideal volunteer will be organized, motivated, and interested in clinical psychology or neuroscience. 

We do not generally accept volunteers who can only commit to the summer. During the year, a minimum of 10 hours per week is required, and you must be able to make at least a three-quarter commitment.
