Boutros receives grant to study neural connectivity

Sydney Boutros

Sydney Boutros, a behavioral neuroscientist and assistant professor in the Department of Psychological Science, received a $5,000 grant through the Association for Psychological Science for Teaching and Public Understanding of Psychological Science for her proposal, “Making Connections: Enhancing undergraduate student learning about neural connectivity through technology-enabled experimentation using the see-one, do-one, teach-one framework.”

Boutros’ primary field of research is learning and memory, specifically, exploring underlying mechanisms to investigate cognitive impairment and neurodegeneration. Beyond her research, she enjoys finding fun ways to bring neuroscience to the public, by collaborating with local artists, hosting talks at community events and sharing the joy of neuroscience with underserved populations.
