    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 10

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Preference for students who have completed courses in research methods, statistics, and memory and cognition.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    We strongly prefer a 2-year commitment from undergraduates in our lab because of the effort required to train undergraduates in our research methods. We require a minimum commitment of 10 hours per week. During the second year, the student may have the opportunity to lead a study with the help of the research mentor. The goal is to present that study in a research presentation at UIC or a regional or national scientific meeting. Our students have won awards for their research and research grants.
