Sophia Francisco

Susquehanna University, Class of 2018
From New York, N.Y.
I am currently working on a Neuroscience major, in addition to Spanish and Mathematics minors, with the aspiration of utilizing my language and mathematical skills in my career. I am very active with several clubs, on campus, including serving as Secretary of the Beta Beta Beta Biological Honors Society and Treasurer of the Neuroscience Club. I am also involved in the Nu Rho Psi National Honor Society in Neuroscience and Society for Neuroscience. I was selected, along with 9 other students, for a very competitive Bio-STEM scholarship, funded by the National Science Foundation, at Susquehanna University, which allows me access to the best academic advisors and guidance towards my future. It is important, to me, to be active in the Susquehanna community and continue my studies in hopes of becoming an epidemiologist.

I am currently working with Dr. Kathleen Bailey on her research on the effects of stress on attention in the prefrontal cortex. We run rodents in the operant chamber to test their attention span and their ability to retrieve the reward of water after water deprivation. We record the results using the MED-PC IV behavioral software. We are trying to bring in moderate stressors, such as restraint, forced swim, and mild foot shock, into the experiment. It has been shown that moderate stressors improve attention and we are hoping to detect any difference that may arise and will hopefully benefit our results.
