The week of Sept. 21, four Lindenwood students attended and presented their work at the annual Midwest Regional Neuroscience (or Midbrains) Conference at Augustana College in Rock Island, Ill.
The Midbrains conference is an annual event consisting of faculty and undergraduate students from the upper Midwest. The event provides a forum for students studying neuroscience to present research findings, attend lectures, and meet other students who are also studying neuroscience and similar disciplines.
Within just one month of the semester, Lindenwood students were able to complete two projects to be presented at the 2019 conference. The students who participated in the September 21 conference were Samantha Ebert, Kevin McGowan, Ryan Osborne, and Nam Nguyen. The projects were titled “Physical Stress, BMI, and Time Perception” and “Can you hear what I feel?” Dr. Sara Bagley, Lindenwood associate professor of psychology, sponsored the projects.
“I’m so proud of the work these four students, as well as Kristine Garrett (’19) and Keersten Heinrich, and what they have conducted in my psychology research lab over the last year,” said Bagley. “Presenting at Midbrains was an amazing opportunity for them to not only present their findings and show the amazing projects we are doing at Lindenwood University, but also network with others for potential graduate school opportunities and possible collaborations with other undergraduate institutions interested in similar research.”
