  How Corticopetal Basal Forebrain GABAergic Neurons Modulate Attention
Advisor:  Joshua Burk

This particular set of neurons has never been studied before! By examining the manner in which they affect attention, I will be shedding new light on how this area of the brain works. The Honors Fellowship is important because it allows me to collect the research I need to complete writing my senior honors thesis.
