Taylor Guth

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Taylor is a junior Neuroscience and Behavior major pursuing a career in sports neurology. She is interested in studying how cognitive function is impacted by concussions. Previous research has focused on the effects of genetics and concussion history on event-related potentials and its potential use in concussion management.

Katie McGuckin

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Katie is a junior Neuroscience and Behavior major interested in how memory changes with age, particularly for those affected by neurodegenerative diseases. She is also interested in how noninvasive treatments and preventative measures for these diseases could be commercially scaled as potential substitutes for medications. 

Mary Glass

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Mary is a sophomore Neuroscience & Behavior major pursuing a medical career. She is interested in studying cognition and memory, especially in relation to aging and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Shannon O'Hara

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Shannon is a junior Neuroscience and Behavior major with a pre-medicine concentration. In addition to neurodegeneration and its relation to learning and memory, she is also interested in psychopathology, particularly in how neurodegeneration relates to and affects mental disorders and how neurostimulation can be used to treat disorders. 

Mario-Cyriac Tcheukado

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Mario is a sophomore majoring in Neuroscience and Behavior pre-med. Mario is interested in neurodegenerative diseases and how they effect the rate of memory degradation. His previous research includes the effects of amphetamines on the plasticity of the gap junction-based astrocyte network connectivity.

Willian DeFaria

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Willian is a sophomore studying Neuroscience and Behavior and ACMS. He is interested in computational neuroscience and neural networking and aspires to have a research career in brain mapping to find novel ways of treating cognitive disorders. He plans on going to medical school to pursue a combined MD/PhD degree.

Stephanie Franczak

Research Assistant, Undergraduate

Stephanie is a freshman pre-professional studies and psychology major planning to attend medical school. She is

interested in the neural processes that underlie learning and memory, with specific interests in bio-markers that predict neurological pathology.
