The Cognition and Action Lab is seeking research assistants to help with a variety of projects designed to investigate the relationship between sleep and memory consolidation in young and older adults. The neural basis of this relationship will also be assessed. Primary activities will include administering memory tests, applying electrodes to record sleep activity (polysomnography recordings), and attending weekly lab meetings. Must have a GPA of at least 3.25. Please respond as soon as possible if you are interested!
