Knowing Neurons

Ganglios basales

Una colección de estructuras principalmente involucradas en ayudar a controlar los movimientos voluntarios, pero con funciones igualmente importantes en la cognición, el aprendizaje y la motivación, entre otros. Los ganglios basales incluyen el núcleo caudado, el putamen, la sustancia negra, el globo pálido, el núcleo acuminado y el núcleo subtalámico.

Arielle Hogan

Arielle Hogan received a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in French from the University of Virginia. She is now pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience in the NSIDP program at UCLA. Her research focuses on CNS injury and neural repair. Specifically, she is researching the differential intrinsic transcriptional programs that allow for PNS regeneration and investigating how these transcriptional programs can be induced in models of CNS injury to promote regeneration. She also enjoys learning about biomechatronics and brain-machine interface (BMI), as well as participating in science outreach and teaching. Outside of the lab, she spends time practicing her French, playing basketball, watching movies (even the bad ones), and traveling.
