Dr. Larson is always interested in graduate student applications.
He is specifically looking for applicants with a strong interest in research using electroencephalogram (EEG) and event-related potentials (ERPs) to study the interaction between cognitive control, food intake, and exercise, as well as the effects of acute- and long-term exercise on cognitive functioning. He is also pursuing future studies using EEG/ERPs with people who have experienced a concussion.
Successful applicants will have a strong focus on research skills and a history of good research experience (not necessarily EEG/ERP experience, although these would be a plus). Clinical neuropsychology applicants are also welcome, but those with a strong interest in research using EEG/ERPs to study the topics above will have the most success in applying to the lab.
Dr. Larson is looking forward to your applications!
