In particular if one has little practical experience with research in the field (neuroscience), and has limited research experience in another area though did not fit well (computer vision).
What does one put on the email? Classes taken? Experiments done? Skills (reading primary literature, matlab, statistics and writing)? Or just a request for a meeting?
Should I mention in the email my major research requirements that specify I must work in the same lab for two semesters with paperwork (which my advisor suggested volunteering in first to see how I fit)?
