Dr. Michelle Tong
Assistant Professor of Psychology/Neuroscience
My passion is working with students, both in the classroom and in the lab. My research takes a systems neuroscience approach to the study of memory. I am interested in how organisms learn about and remember their sensory environment as they behave in the world. I use behavioral studies paired with psychopharmacology and molecular biology techniques to study the molecular molecular involved in olfactory memory.
Undergraduate researchers were involved at every step of the research process, and mentorship of these students has been one of the most enriching aspects of my work. If you interested in joining my lab, don't hesitate to get in touch.
We are currently seeking 3-4 undergraduate researchers for a Faculty-Student Collaborative Research project during the Fall 2017 semester!
