Neuroscience Project Ideas and How to Brainstorm Your Own

Neuroscience has many different fields of study that you can dive into (e.g., cognitive, clinical, behavioral, systems, neuroimaging, neuropharmacology, neuroendocrinology, neuroethology, etc.). Since neuroscience research often requires expensive equipment to measure different parts of the brain and the body, the project ideas in this article will focus primarily on literature reviews, which you can do from anywhere.

Polygence Scholars Are Also Passionate About

A literature review is a synthesis of key work that has been conducted about a topic over several years. Doing the research to conduct a literature review will deepen your understanding of your chosen neuroscience topic.

Behavioral Neuroscience Project Idea: To Fight or Flight? That is the question.

Our brains are wired from birth to respond to threats found in our immediate environment. These threat-activated circuits are responsible for regulating what is commonly referred to as our "Fight or Flight System." However, not everyone responds the same way to the same exact threat, and not all behavioral responses are appropriate for the given conditions (e.g., fleeing from a friendly chihuahua may not be adaptive). What accounts for these differences in behavior? One explanation for these observed distinct behaviors is differences in past experience. How does previous experience affect our threat response? 

In this project, you will read various peer-reviewed journals to gain an understanding of how researchers have looked at experience (i.e. stress) and its effect on brain activity in the presence of threats. You can explore this question by looking into 1) Human research of patients with stress-induced psychiatric disorders (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD). 2) Mouse research literature to learn about laboratory techniques used to assess defensive behaviors in response to threats. 

Idea by neuroscience research mentor Salvador

Molecular/Cellular Neuroscience Project Idea: Optogenetics 

One of the coolest and most widely used techniques in neuroscience research today is optogenetics, which gives us the ability to control the activity of brain cells with a flash of light. In this project, you will research: How light-sensitive proteins were discovered and the basic principles of how they work in genetically-modified neurons; How optogenetics is used in research experiments to answer different types of questions in neuroscience; Some of the most important scientific discoveries from optogenetics and how optogenetics has changed the way we think about the brain. 

Idea by neuroscience research mentor Marley 

Perception Neuroscience Project Idea: The Neuroscience of Sensory Reactivity 

How does atypical sensory reactivity change our behavior? Our senses are powerful, and they can change the way we perceive and navigate through the world. When senses are hyper- or hypo-sensitive, how does this affect people? Select a specific sensory pathway that you are interested in and examine how it is disrupted in a number of conditions, such as neurodevelopmental disorders.

Idea by neuroscience research mentor Jacqueline

Check out even more project ideas on the 21 Neuroscience Research and Passion Project Ideas for Middle and High School Students post, which groups ideas into cognitive, clinical, molecular/cellular, perception, affective, behavioral, and more. 

You can also brainstorm your own project ideas based on what human behaviors, motivations, or trends interest you. If you want help narrowing down your neuroscience topic, the Pathfinders program gives you the chance to meet with three different mentors who specialize in your fields of interest. You can discuss your project ideas with them, and they can help you grow your idea, discover new research techniques, and point the way to great resources and alternative options. 

Neuroscience Projects from Polygence Scholars

Here are some inspiring neuroscience projects done by some of our Polygence Scholars. 

The Effect of Childhood Trauma on Cortisol Levels

Tahmid conducted a literature review on childhood trauma and its influence on cortisol levels, He discovered that there are mixed findings that can be attributed to individual differences in how the stress response system adapts to different traumatic experiences. While some studies indicate increased or blunted cortisol levels, others suggest no significant correlation, and variations exist based on the specific type of trauma. You can read all of his findings here.  

CRISPR-based therapeutic targeting of ADHD

Maria conducted a literature review to explore the latest updates on using CRISPR/Cas9 in the treatment of ADHD. Her research found that ADHD is believed to have a genetic component, with the disorder running in families, and it also suggested non-genetic factors could contribute. While gene therapy and CRISPR shows promise in treating ADHD, Maria also emphasized the ethical issues researchers face when utilizing CRISPR technologies for this purpose, indicating the need for further investigation. Her research will be published in the International Youth Neuroscience Association.

Bilingualism in the Brain

Simone wanted to know whether a bilingual brain processes linguistic information differently from a monolingual brain, even when a bilingual is only using one language. In her study, she discussed the brain areas involved in language production and comprehension and explored how monolingual and bilingual brains function. She discovered that bilinguals do process language differently than monolinguals. You can read about all her findings here

Writing a Neuroscience Research Paper

As mentioned earlier, conducting clinical neuroscience research typically requires access to labs, equipment, and specialized training, which may be challenging for high school students. In contrast, a literature review allows you to delve into existing research, enhancing your understanding of the field and honing critical analysis skills without the need for extensive resources. A literature is a type of secondary research that describes how different studies relate to each other and how the field has developed over time.

Begin by clearly defining your research question or topic, focusing on a specific aspect of neuroscience. Next, conduct thorough research, collecting and critically assessing relevant academic articles and books.

As you gather information, you can begin outlining your research paper. Your paper will usually have six sections: Materials, Methods, Data, Discussion, and Conclusion. You’ll also need to write an Introduction that opens with the problem being addressed, any existing research, and an overview of your research—all of which is best written about after you’ve finished conducting all your research. Another important piece to your paper is your thesis statement. You can always come up with a preliminary or working thesis and then refine it or completely revise it as you learn more. You also may need to write an abstract. At its core, an abstract is a standalone piece of writing that offers a snapshot of the problem, methodology, findings, and conclusions. If you need more general guidance overall, here’s a great article on how to write a good research paper

If you have some ideas and want the support of a skilled neuroscience mentor, apply to be a part of our flagship neuroscience mentorship program

Journals in Neuroscience

Once you’ve researched, written, and perfected your research paper, it’s time to introduce it to the world. You could enter it into a competition, as mentioned earlier in this post, create a podcast, do a YouTube video about it, or publish it in a journal. Publishing your research in a peer-reviewed journal can take the great work you’ve already done and add credibility to it. It also makes a stronger impression than unpublished research. The process of having your work reviewed by advanced degree researchers can be a valuable experience in itself. You can receive feedback from experts and learn how to improve upon the work you’ve already done. 

Here are some publications you could look into.
