Piecing Together Autism Spectrum Disorder: Fordham Student’s Research on Inhibitory Neurons in Mouse Brains

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complicated neurodevelopmental disorder that is slowly being pieced apart by the research of those in the neuroscience field. Taking on a piece of the puzzle is Fordham University student Celia Hans, with the help of Dr. Batista-Brito and her research lab at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Hans is a … More Piecing Together Autism Spectrum Disorder: Fordham Student’s Research on Inhibitory Neurons in Mouse Brains

Detecting human iPSC-derived neuron effect in chromatin dynamics and genetic variants using in situ Hi-C assay

I am currently a freshman attending FCLC and double majoring in Integrative Neuroscience and English on the pre-medical track. On Thursdays, I volunteer in the Surgical Acute Care Unit at NYU Tisch Hospital. During one of my shifts, I had a conversation with a physician-scientist who introduced me to the world of research. Since that … More Detecting human iPSC-derived neuron effect in chromatin dynamics and genetic variants using in situ Hi-C assay

Civic Programs as a Tool to Foster Social Engagement & Community Building: Following up with the MoralUp! Project

A sophomore at FCRH, Gabriella Langella says she has always been interested in the intricacies of the human brain. She is an Integrated Neuroscience major on the cellular and molecular track and a Spanish minor. This pairing is reflective of her interest in the intersection between neurology and linguistics–how the brain responds to different languages. … More Civic Programs as a Tool to Foster Social Engagement & Community Building: Following up with the MoralUp! Project

Rewiring Pathways in Spinal Injury Patients

For the last three years of her undergraduate career at Fordham, Rose Hill senior Lauren Mance has had the opportunity to work closely with neuroscientists at the Wadsworth Center, a New York Department of Health hospital in Albany. There, she has studied the effects of operant conditioning, or the re-learning of functional bodily mechanisms via … More Rewiring Pathways in Spinal Injury Patients
