you still have to have the marks to get into graduate school , but if you are hired for a research position I know you probably do. It's great to work closely with teachers , not just for the experience , but sometimes , if you develop a great relationship you may want to ask for a referral . I know that the references are very important for applications to graduate school , especially with my experience in Canada : MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I worked as a teaching assistant ( for one year) and a research assistant ( since September 2008) in linguistics and I heard that it will be useful for my graduate applications , and say that the longer the duration of these experiences , the better. It should enhance your chances . I think any experience research assistant will help spice up your cv , whether it is related to neuroscience when you are applying for psychology , although I have had my research experience primarily in linguistics 'm thinking of applying to schools graduate to English . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I think the more diverse the better. Do not believe all graduate schools are looking for more cookie cutter representatives , the humanities and the sciences are increasingly blurred and crossing into the material for graduate schools soon people will need more than ever , are those a dynamic curriculum and range of experience . You sound like you're on your way imo . Good Luck !

Of course . If you are applying for a research program in psychology ( ie not applied clinical program ) , and then having research experience is not only suggested , but it is an official or unofficial requirement for many programs . I say it can be a formal requirement for some programs , because many of the people applying for the same sites also have research experience and expertise that might otherwise make them more qualified than you , you do not want to happen. < Br > MedlinePlus Anyway , being a research assistant demonstrated an interest and commitment to research . Ideally, you want to be able to link their experience to their research interests in psychology as well, but any investigation is better than no research .
