Rowan Staley, B.A.

I graduated from Bowdoin College in May 2018 with a BA in Neuroscience and Religion. Throughout college, I conducted research in genetics while studying polymorphisms in the dopamine transporter gene, as well as in neuropsychology while preprocessing fMRI data for patients with traumatic brain injury. My interest in neuroimaging and integrating clinical work with academic research lead me to a dual position with the Napadow Lab and the Neurointestinal Health Center, lead by Dr. Kuo. I am currently involved in a few different projects, one studying the effects of vagus nerve stimulation on GI motility and the CNS through combined brain-gut fMRI, and another studying the efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy in the treatment of gastroparesis. Outside of work, I enjoy reading science fiction and exploring Boston's museums and bookstores.
