Undergraduate Honors Student
As someone who enjoys learning, I have always been interested in the hippocampus, its role in long-term memory and its functions. My fascination with hippocampal involvement in a variety of cognitive functions, like attention, perception, implicit memory and imagination grew exponentially last year when I took an advanced seminar on Brain and Memory. I am especially interested in how attention influences hippocampal functioning and subsequent learning, and vice versa, how could hippocampus influence attention. In the future, I would like to expand our knowledge and perspective on how the experiences of a patient with hippocampal damage could be affected on a much larger scale than the long-term memory system and how we can incorporate research into practice to improve the quality of life of these individuals.
Fun Fact: I love camping and hiking and currently, I’m obsessed with an idea of hiking Pacific Crest Trail all alone.
