I am a master’s student studying whether dendritic spines are altered in the serotonin transporter knockout rat model and whether these changes also occur over time, using western blot, qPCR and neuronal culture techniques. My interests and passions lie in the cellular/molecular bases of behaviour, especially with regards to synaptic neurobiology. In my spare time I’m either at the gym, watching tv shows, or sleeping (which also happens to be my favourite hobby).
