Research Course

MBB 90r (Supervised Research on Topics in Mind Brain Behavior) is an individual research tutorial. You arrange the tutorial yourself, identifying a faculty member who will serve as your research supervisor for a project related to her/his research program. To identify labs or faculty, you may consult this website’s Research Opportunities section or contact Shawn Harriman in the Mind/Brain/Behavior office, faculty advisors in MBB tracks, and the MBB Board of Faculty Advisors.

Your work in this course will be determined by your research supervisor, and usually entails regular weekly hours in her/his laboratory or research program. You will be expected to e-mail a one-page progress report to the Mind/Brain/Behavior Office by Wednesday, October 11th for the fall term or Wednesday, February 28th for the spring term.. At the end of the semester you will submit a completed research report to your supervisor and to the Mind/Brain/Behavior Offices by Friday, December 9th for the fall or Wednesday, May 2nd for the spring. Your grade will be based on your work in the lab and on your written reports, and will be due from your research supervisor by Friday, December 15th for the fall or Wednesday, May 9th for the spring.

To enroll in the course, you should complete an application (linked from the bottom of this page) and submit it by noon on Wednesday, September 6th for the fall or Thursday, January 25th for the spring. This deadline is for including the course in your Crimson Cart, as our faculty need to review your application and we need to approve the course by course registration day (September 7th or January 26th). Your research supervisor should not sign your study card. We are also willing to accept applications after the initial course registration deadline, as we know it can take several days to finalize details for research projects. For very late applications, keep in mind that the add/drop deadline is Monday, October 2nd in the fall and Tuesday, February 20th in the spring, and we will need several days review time before that.

MBB 90r provides 4 units of course credit each semester taken. The MBB 90r course ID is 125466, the fall term class number is 12973, and the spring term class number is 13004. For General Education, the divisional distribution is Social Sciences.
