Student Research

All Neuroscience students conduct a research project in their senior year. There are a number of interesting projects to choose from; some ongoing projects are listed below. On completion of their project, each student is expected to present their data at an appropriate regional or national conference.

Alexandra Bailey

(Advised by Dr. McGovern) The Effects of Dextromethorphan and Ethanol on Spatial Memory, for her Capstone project

Maura Miglioretti

(Advised by Dr. McGovern) Blueberry Extract and Cabergoline: Paired Treatment of Parkinson's Disease, for her Capstone project

Jenna Rimko

(Advised by Dr. McGovern) Co-Administration of Cabergoline with Venlafaxine on Rats with Modeled Major Depressive Disorder, for her Capstone project in the Research Scholars program


What can you do with a Neuroscience degree?

Imagine yourself in a research laboratory investigating drug discovery, going to medical school, writing scientific articles, working in industry, or teaching other, future neuroscientists.
