plasticity at the Beckman Institute, University of Illinois. The
successful applicant will have the opportunity to play an important role

complex video-game like environments and fitness training with children
Essential skills include a thorough knowledge of functional MRI and structural MRI techniques, good organizational abilities, as well as the ability to work well in research teams. While this position requires technical sophistication it is more suited for someone who is scientifically interested in neuroplasticity and its relation to cognition, than someone with a strict methods orientation.
