Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

Do some research into whats around you. You could ask a hospital if you could volunteer? or see if there are any laboratories near you.

Where are you education-wise? A-level, undergrad, postgrad?

It can be difficult to get experience when you're under 18, though check out some of the links above. You can also look at less direct forms - i.e. older people's homes may have residents with dementia, or other similar conditions, which are neurological. The work you do won't be medical or Psychology based, but is still good experience.

Having said that, don't worry too much about getting experience at this stage.

It'd be unlikely you find lab work, but if you're near a uni you could email and ask them or attend some lectures. If you're very lucky you could get a place shadowing a hospital neurologist. If you're just looking to fill a personal statement it's much easier than finding relevant and engaging experience.

Try a local university department. I live in Birmingham so emailed one professor from Aston Uni about doing 2 weeks unpaid with them and he kindly let me do it with his department. I got to see their brain centre, their sleep research area, cut brain slices and put electrodes in them and interpret the data (their main focus was epilepsy) as well as understanding more as to how they ethically use animals in research.

It's worth a shot to try because you never know who might be willing to take you on. Good luck.

This thread is two years old,I doubt any of these posters are still online.E-mail neuroscience professors in any uni near you and ask if they can take you up for unpaid work experience,volunteering in their labs .
Especially with Brexit,there might be a shortage of staff at some labs as European staff have been discouraged,so there a probably a few labs happy to take a helping hand.
