Halle Dimsdale-Zucker, Graduate Student
My research focuses on uncovering the neural architecture supporting human memory. I use functional imaging (including fMRI) to investigate the functional and structural relationships that bind items with their contextual associations.
Prior to starting my PhD in the Dynamic Memory Lab, I completed my B.A. at the University of Michigan, where I worked with Patti Reuter-Lorenz studying false memories, and was a research assistant in Elizabeth Kensinger’s Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at Boston College where I studied memory in healthy older adults.
Moving to a warmer climate after years of bundling in winter coats and boots in the Midwest and New England now allows me to swim year-round and take advantage of local activities like hiking, the Davis farmer’s market, and learning to be graceful while biking.
