    Robyn Amos-Kroohs

    MDB Graduate Program

    Robyn’s main focus is on a developmental model of lead (Pb) exposure. As an extension of the model of Pb combined with manganese and stress, she is working on cellular mechanisms of Pb on astroglial cells. She is also involved in an NMR project to quantifying creatine metabolites.

    NS Graduate Student

    Amanda studies the brain pathways involved in controlling navigation. Navigation impairments are seen in human disorders including Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, stroke and aging. She is comparing brain regions involved in route-based navigation using the Cincinnati Water Maze to those involved in spatial learning using the Morris water maze
