Alexandra M. Yarger

I'm a neuroethologist, which means that I am interested in the neural basis of animal behavior

I graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a BA in Biology, and Minors in Chemistry and Evolutionary Biology. During my time, at Case I also assisted in behavioral research at the Cleveland and Columbus zoos. I am a member of the Society for Neuroscience and the Phi Sigma Biological Honors Society. I received my Master’s degree in Biology, with a focus in neuroscience and physiology from Illinois State University and I am currently in my third year as a PhD student at Case Western Reserve University.
