Post-doctoral training at MRRI

The postdoctoral program at MRRI offers hands-on and didactic training in an environment that features state-of-the-art patient-oriented research in cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, cognitive rehabilitation, and motor control. Fellows craft individualized training programs to develop new research tools, enhance their research skills, and move them towards an independent, productive research career.

Offerings include rotations in labs using specialized technology for behavioral analysis (eye-tracking, motion tracking, split-belt treadmill, etc.), structural and functional neuroimaging, and electrophysiological brain stimulation treatments (TMS, tDCS), and other techniques.  Seminars and tutorials offer instruction in topics ranging from clinical trials methodology to voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping to computational modeling of cognition.
