Undergraduate summer research in Neuroscience at Ohio University.

A Summer of Neuroscience at Ohio University is the result of a NSF 
Research Experiences for Undergraduates Site Award.  The award is 
sufficient to fund a stipend ($2,600), travel costs, and room and 
board for ten undergraduate students and to allow some students 
to present their results at national meetings.  The ten week program 
consists of a two-week short course in neuroscience, ten weeks of 
hands-on laboratory research under the guidance of a faculty mentor, 
a variety of structured activities at which the students can interact 
with research scientists ranging from graduate students to professors, 
and a final colloquium at which the students will orally present 
their results.  

Projects have been carefully chosen so that the students 1) investigate 
questions of current scientific relevance, 2) are able to understand 
the scientific and experimental issues involved, and 3) are likely to 
make significant progress during the summer.  Participation in this 
program will introduce the students to the satisfactions of a research 
career and materially enhance the student's understanding of the 
scientific process.  Students should review the Neurobiology Faculty 
Research Interests Booklet (available at the web site below or by mail 
upon request) and identify at least two faculty mentors with whom 
they would like to work.
