Amy E. Wright
Lab Manager; Research Assistant
Amy graduated from Hamilton College in May, 2015 with a B.A. in Neuroscience. During her time in the program she developed a particular interest in behavioral neuroscience and neural plasticity, and spent her senior year researching drug dependence and behavioral sensitization.
Her current interests include the organization of, and functional inter-connectivity between, the brain areas involved with language, memory and learning. In particular, she wants to continue working to increase our understanding of the plastic changes that occur in these areas following brain damage such as stroke.
