Participate in Studies

We conduct studies with human participants. Most of the studies take place in a single session that lasts anywhere between one and two hours.

During the school year, students may sign up to participate through the University of Idaho’s SONA system.

We also conduct studies with healthy adults over age 55 and people with Parkinson’s disease (mainly in the summers). Please send us an email if you would like to be invited to participate in a summer study.

Assist with Research

There are no current openings for undergraduate research assistants in the laboratory. However, we do accept new undergraduate research assistants every year. Preference is given to sophomores, to students with a strong GPA, and to students who have done well in Psych 218. Interest in our research is also a plus! A one-year commitment is requested.

We have an opening for a highly motivated graduate student (M.S. or Ph.D.) in either neuroscience or psychology. Please direct your inquiries to Dr. Cohen.
