Expression of Ion Channels: SCN9A and TRPv1 In Mice Clitorides

This lab manual demonstrates an understanding of research methods used in neuroscience and is an engagement in research design, data analysis and critical thinking of an inquiry based research question. Abstract The clitoris is a collection of erectile tissue in the vulva of the female reproductive system. What makes the clitoris unique is the fact that […]

Guillain-Barré Syndrome

This paper on a central nervous system disorder demonstrates a basic understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system. Abstract Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a rare neurological condition characterized by muscle weakness and diminished reflexes due to the inflammation of the nerves. The exact cause of Guillain-Barre Syndrome is unknown, but it has been […]

Neuroscience Major Learning Outcomes

As a Neuroscience major at Agnes Scott College I am  able to: Demonstrate a basic understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system at various levels of organizationUnderstand the research methods used in neuroscience and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the research techniquesEngage in research design, data analysis and critical thinking of […]

Scotties With Nerves Presentation

When my research group and I presented our research from BIO 216 (Molecular Biology) at Scotties With Nerves in 2018, we demonstrated an exceptional ability to understand, explain, and present the nervous system. We used research methods commonly found in neuroscience research, like primary literature research,  gel electrophoresis, CRISPR, and scientific presentation to share our …
