Neuroscience Graduate Program - Student Profile

Kaitlin Wilcoxen

Student Profile

I'm a rising second year Neuroscience graduate student. I have a BS in Biology from SUNY Geneseo and an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience from University College London. My master's work assessed inter-hemispheric asymmetry of various white matter tracts in epilepsy patients, using tractography. While at Brown I have rotated with Dr. Leigh Hochberg and Dr. Wael Asaad, and ultimately joined Dr. Hochberg's lab to work with the BrainGate group.

Research Description

Currently, I am working in Dr. Leigh Hochberg's lab on the BrainGate project, which seeks to improve communication and independence for people with tetraplegia or paralysis. My focus is on the role of premotor cortex in movement.
