Oral #35: Ayana Amaechi – Understanding Sex Differences in Pathological Aggression with a Mouse Model

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Marco Bortolato

I researched pathological sex differences in aggression & how they could further advance neurodevelopmental disorder characterizations. My study focused on understanding the mechanism behind Aggressive Behavior (ASB) disorder through gene/sex/environment interactions by comparing testosterone levels & genetic inclination towards low monoamine oxidase A expression. In order study this, I partook in both benchwork & clinical processes, & learned many skills to better understand this mechanism.
