  • Other mentors not found on this list may supervise independent research activities for BIO 394/ANA394/PSY393 with the approval of the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Robin Cooper. The student must provide Dr. Cooper with a one-page description of the proposed research activities.
  • Independent research activities supervised by mentors not on this list may be eligible for BIO 394/ANA394/PSY393 (Research in Neuroscience) credit if they provide a significant neuroscience experience. To enable this determination, please write a summary of the proposed research activities (no more than one page) that clearly describes the neuroscience aspects of the project, the hypothesis to be tested, the methods used and your role in the project. Submit this summary to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Robin Cooper.
