The Gorka Lab is Seeking Undergraduate Volunteers

August 1, 2018

The Gorka Lab in the Psychiatry Department is now accepting applications for undergraduate research assistants. We aim to better understand how the brain impacts mood and behavior; especially anxiety and alcohol abuse. Our work uses a variety of tools including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), psychophysiology, self-report questionnaires, and behavioral tasks. Many of our measures are focused on response to uncertain stressors and rewards. We believe that individuals who are extremely sensitive to uncertainty may be at risk for a variety of mental health problems. We currently have two, large-scale funded projects and many opportunities to get involved!
