The UConn SLaP Lab, directed by Dr. Rachel M. Theodore, has announced its 2016 RISE program. This internship-based program will provide summer research assistants with the opportunity to learn about many aspects of the research process in a hands-on, immersive laboratory environment. RISE participants will be engaged in numerous aspects of research including recruiting participants, testing children and adults in behavioral and neuroimaging tasks, analyzing data, and interpreting results. Research assistants will also participate in guided readings of the speech perception literature and attend laboratory meetings in which we discuss ongoing projects and current issues in the field. RISE participants will receive close mentorship by faculty and graduate students.
