Marin Science Seminar Presentation: "Memory, Money, and Heat Sensing Underwear: Interdisciplinarity in Neuroscience" with Irina Rabkina, TLHS grad and junior at Scripps College (January 9, 2013) Download the flyer here.
In just two years as an undergraduate neuroscience major, I have been introduced to a variety of tools used and topics studied under the umbrella of neuroscientific research. In this talk, I will focus on my work at the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies of the Claremont Graduate University during the spring and summer of 2012 and hopefully answer the question on everybody's mind: just what do underwear have to do with anything? (For a hint, check out the TED talk by Dr. Paul Zak, the director of the lab)
Irina is a TLHS graduate ('10) who is currently majoring in Neuroscience at Scripps College. She is involved in both the Social Cognition & Decision Lab at Scripps, and the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University. Irina's interest in neuroscience sprang from a talk she heard through Marin Science Seminar, so she is excited to return to the source and share her experience.
