“This internship has given me the opportunity to learn a lot of skills that are really valuable,” said Ashley Lawrence ‘14, a psychology major in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters.
During the summer of 2013, Lawrence interned in Baltimore at the Laboratory for Behavioral Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging, a division of the National Institutes of Health. Her project focused on the stress hormone cortisol and how it relates to age-related changes in brain volume. Her duties included running statistical analyses, writing code, and interpreting results.
