Thesis Thursday- Erin Howard

Thesis Thursday- Erin Howard
Thesis Thursday

00:00 / 4:27

My name is Erin Howard, and I am currently a senior at the University of Arizona studying neuroscience and cognitive science and anthropology. I am originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, but I was drawn to UA for its beautiful campus and excellent academics. I have been passionate about studying neuroscience for many years, and I was able to pursue it through UA’s outstanding neuroscience program. Currently, I am involved in research in Dr. Jean-Marc Fellous’ Computational and Experimental Neuroscience Laboratory where I am studying the possibility of using auditory cues to influence memory in rats during sleep. I am also investigating the neural mechanisms behind learning and memory by recording electrical brain activity in rats. My career goal is to earn an MD-PhD combined degree in neuroscience and work as a research physician studying neurodegenerative diseases. In my free time, I love to dance, sing, play music, read, hike, and watch movies!


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.
