The lab is located in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College. As a member of the Ivy League, Dartmouth offers a vibrant intellectual community. Dartmouth is located in the scenic Upper Valley of New Hampshire, close to several Appalachian trails, and is only a 2-hour drive from Boston.
Prospective Graduate Students
We have received fundings from NIH to support two graduate students to work on an exciting project (in collaboration with Alicia Izquierdo at UCLA) on circuit-level neural mechanisms of adaptive learning. To apply please visit the PBS’s admission page. Pre-application inquiries are welcome and should be directed to Alireza Soltani.
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
In our research we use both computational (detailed models of the brain) and experimental (human psychophysics and neuroimaging) approaches. Undergraduate students with quantitative and programming skills can be involved in computational modeling projects and those with interests in learning about experimental methods can contribute to designing/conducting experiments and to analyzing data.
