Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Foundations of Structural MRI Physics

In this project, you will learn about the physics of structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). You will explore the physics of the MRI machine and how those signals interact with the body to produce a structural MRI. You may choose to focus on anatomical images or diffusion-weighted images, or you may explore both topics. You will then produce an a scientific review paper or infographic depicting the process, depending on your preference. Prerequisites Basic understanding of physics and biology.

Foundations of Functional MRI Physics

In this project, you will learn about the physics of functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). You will explore the physics of the MRI machine and how those signals interact with the body to produce a functional MRI. You will then produce an a scientific review paper or infographic depicting the process, depending on your preference. Prerequisites Basic understanding of physics and biology.

Psychiatric Applications of Neuromodulatory Interventions

In this project, you will learn the mechanism of action for a specific neuromodulatory intervention (e.g., electroconvulsive therapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation, etc). You will then review the current literature regarding the application of the intervention and discuss potential future directions. The project will culminate in writing a scientific review paper on your chosen neuromodulatory intervention. Prerequisites - Basic understanding of biology - Strong interest in the topic - A few hours of work outside of each session Additional Information You will need access to scientific journal databases, which can often be accessed through your local library.
