Meet Professor Jen Mozolic
With her background in cognitive neuroscience, psychology professor Jennifer Mozolic says she is “fascinated by the way the brain supports human thought and behavior. In my classes, I love connecting students to the basics of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology by providing them opportunities to experience things firsthand – like touching a human brain or hearing nerve cells sending signals.”
With Professor Mozolic’s guidance, you’ll learn brain-behvaior fundamentals in the classroom, lab, and within the community. Students consistently describe Mozolic with such adjectives as challenging, supportive, and dedicated.
“It is really exciting to see students use their understanding of the brain to explore complex abilities like sensory perception, movement, learning and memory,” Mozolic says. “Many students are passionate about gaining insight into conditions such as dyslexia, ADHD, autism, addiction and Alzheimer’s Disease that have had an impact on their lives or the lives of their loved ones.”
