Internships for Students Who Plan to Major in Neuroscience
There are several internships for students in the neurosciences. During the school year students are encouraged to seek research experience either at Stonehill or at nearby institutions such as the Brockton VA/Harvard Medical School.
The National Science Foundation sponsors a program called Research Experiences for Undergraduates which makes it possible for undergraduates from different schools to participate in ongoing research at many large research institutions. Students are encouraged to apply to these competitive programs. Upon completion of such programs, students are encouraged to work with their research mentors and to present the results of their work at regional conferences such as N.E.U.R.O.N.
N.E.U.R.O.N. Conference 2011
Stonehill junior Emily Palmisano and Associate Professor of Psychology John McCoy were honored at the 21st annual Northeastern Under/Graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience (N.E.U.R.O.N.) Conference at Quinnipiac University this fall. To read the whole story click here.

Recently, several Stonehill students have presented the findings of their research at N.E.U.R.O.N. These are listed below with student names in italics.
"Evidence that laboratory rats prefer and will work harder for artificially sweetened water." Kane, LA, Strecker, RE, McCarley RW, and Christie MA
"Physiological and cognitive correlates of stress in females." Ramos Goyette, S, Ames C, Ciovacco G, Coates R, Kendall M, McGeachy A, Mullen R, Varghese J, Yardley M. (These student researchers are pictured above.)
