Noah Hochberg

Neuroscience Student, Lawrence University, Appleton, WI
Curator, Neuroscience Knowledge Network
Research Investigator, NeuroLawrence Club at Lawrence University

I am an undergraduate student majoring in neuroscience.  I discovered neuroscience in a freshman psychology course, and after completing a course entitled brain and behavior during sophomore year, I declared my major.  Currently, my interests in neuroscience include the eye and the ocular system, addiction and the opioid epidemic, neural recording and mapping, neuroanatomy and physiology, psychopharmacology, pain, movement, neurodegenerative disorders, mental health, etc.  The more I delve into my major, the more I will narrow down my interests.  I am working towards a position in graduate school after Lawrence to obtain either a masters or doctorate in neuroscience.

Katelyn Boggs

Doctoral student, GMU Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience

My research interests include the role of trace metals in Alzheimer’s disease pathology, specifically the homeostasis of dietary copper and zinc levels. Currently, Katelyn is investigating the role of copper/zinc homeostasis on biomarkers of neuroinflammation and circadian rhythms in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease working with Dr. Jane Flinn.
