Emma Woolgar

Emma is a faculty-funded PhD student. Her PhD project focuses on "Auditory Circuits for Social Cognition in Non-Human Primates". She develops primate models of social cognitive disorders such as anxiety and autism spectrum disorders by quantitatively assessing phenotypic traits associated with the disorders, and developing viral vector approaches to understand the auditory-amygdala circuits. Emma's project also has a strong emphasis on advancing the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement) and animal welfare.
