Graduate Students


Norma Hernandez

Norma is awesome. Just not at writing bios.


Adam Miller

Adam is interested in systems-level changes during the learning process, and in the contributions of long-term memory to new learning. He is currently investigating cortical input supporting memory processing in the hippocampus.


Rachel Swanson

Rachel is interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of learning and memory. With a background in molecular biology and biochemistry, she hopes to inform her systems-level inquiries into the temporal and functional development of learning and memory circuits, primarily using lesion and in vivo electrophysiology techniques. In her spare time, Rachel likes to examine the relationship between memory and creativity via direct first-person inquiry – painting, sculpture, and design.
