Summer Interns



Erin Ferguson  


Erin is a rising senior at Boston University pursuing a BA in Neuroscience and a MPH. Her previous research includes studying audiovisual speech integration in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and tolerance to cannabinoids. As part of the BAND lab, Erin is excited to spend the summer researching the effects of oxytocin in schizophrenia and having the chance to work with neuroimaging. In the future, she hopes to work in the intersection of neuroscience and public health by implementing interventions and treatments for chronic diseases and mental illness. Whenever she has spare time, Erin enjoys volunteering (cuddling) with cats, watching the Food Network, and hiking around the Bay Area
