Lauren was a Ph.D. student in Neuroscience who completed her degree in 2012. She accepted a post-doctoral position at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. She is evaluating EEG response characteristics in Autism Spectrum Disorders in order to better understand the effect of these genetic mutations on neural processing.
