Thesis Thursday- Emma Armstrong

Thesis Thursday- Emma Armstrong


I’m Emma Armstrong, and I’m a junior majoring in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science and minoring in Linguistics and Biochemistry. After graduating undergraduate and medical school, I hope to become a psychiatrist specializing in especially severe psychiatric disorder cases. Currently, I can be found in both Dr. Jean-Marc Fellous’s lab, where I am studying the affect of sleep-altering drugs on memory reconsolidation in rats, and Dr. Vicky Lai’s lab, where I am just beginning to study how emoji’s affect emotional and linguistic processing of emotionally ambiguous phrases. When I’m not in lab or otherwise busy with homework, I enjoy writing, reading, casually playing video games, and keeping my kittens entertained!




The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. They also get a chance to share their music and interests that motivate them.

Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.

Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM

Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
