Keaven Caro ’18
I spent three years working as a research assistant and then lab manager in Dr. Deirtra Hunter’s Music, Mind and Brain Lab where we studied psychophysiological responses evoked by emotionally charged music in human participants. Dr. Hunter was diligent in her efforts to ensure I graduated with indispensable practical research experiences on and off campus that made me a competitive applicant for professional and academic positions.
“In my junior year, I interned as a research assistant in the Morishita lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. This lab focused on synaptic plasticity and postnatal development of a neural circuit critical for visual-spatial attention. This internship led to a part-time job as a senior in college, then a full-time job for two years after graduation.”
