    making this an ideal task for undergraduate behavioral neuroscience research Enriched Environments Carthage s rodent colony includes enriched environment or complex environment housing In this type of housing rodents are grouped with 10 to 12 other rats of the same sex in large stainless steel cages Toys and other items in the cage are changed on a weekly basis allowing the rats to interact with each other and the objects The environment gives the animals more stimulation explains Professor Penny Seymoure They interact with their environment They move all of their items around they pick favorite things and sleep in them When the cages are cleaned new items are added Within 30 minutes the rats have reorganized it Dr Seymoure says Animals who live in these cages we know from a multitude of research are smarter learn faster have better memory are more flexible in their thinking and adopt alternate strategies quite rapidly 17 arm Radial Maze The 17 arm radial maze is a very challenging task requiring the hippocampus and related brain structures for success in learning the task Professor Penny Seymoure has used the 17 arm radial maze to study rearing environment and gender differences Seymoure P Dou H and Juraska J M 1996 Psychobiol 24 33 37 and lifespan spatial cognition Seymoure P 2003 Spatial memory for the 17 arm radial maze improves over the lifespan of rats living in a complex environment presented at the Society for Neuroscience conference in hooded rats In the 2003 study Dr Seymoure tested Long Evans hooded rats in the 17 arm radial maze four times from before puberty to early old age She found that spatial memory for the 17 arm radial maze significantly improves over the lifespan of rats living in a complex environment Sara Servais Schramm uses the

  • Tristin Nyman — Meet Carthage Neuroscience Majors — Neuroscience — Carthage College
    I absolutely love the enthusiasm they both show toward the Neuroscience Program and their students I simply cannot imagine my Carthage career without their enthusiasm and guidance Since coming to Carthage Tristin has had so many opportunities that if she listed them all they would cover pages she said She has conducted neuroscience research and participated in psychological experiments Her networking skills have been put to the test at professional conferences in Milwaukee and Chicago where she met with representatives from graduate school programs and potential future employers During J Term 2012 she traveled to Senegal where she studied African art and religion After Carthage Tristin plans on attending graduate school and obtaining her Ph D in clinical psychology She wants to work with children who have autism spectrum disorders On campus organizations I am a member of the Carthage Neuroscience Club Honors Council Pre Health Club Alpha Lambda Delta Freshman Honor Fraternity Latin and Belly Dancing Club Beta Beta Beta Biology Honor Fraternity and Psi Chi International Psychology Fraternity I am currently the secretary and treasurer for Carthage Neuroscience Club treasurer for Honors Council and historian for Pre Health Club I was also an Orientation Leader this year helping incoming freshmen move in and start their Carthage careers Favorite professor This is a tough question The professors I have had both in the Neuroscience Program and those from other courses have been wonderful I would say it is a tie between Dr Seymoure and Dr Miller but for different reasons Dr Seymoure shows a passion for her studies and her students She is always willing to sit down and discuss something with you whether it relates to a course or not I have loved every course I have taken with Dr Seymoure and look forward to taking more Dr Miller has a great enthusiasm for his research and neuroscience in general He always keeps his classes entertained and no doubt has a vast knowledge that he is willing to share with his students Dr Miller and Dr Seymoure are both fantastic professors role models and people and I am lucky to learn from them Favorite class My favorite class thus far is definitely Research Methods in Neuroscience with Dr Miller When I first enrolled in the class I was unaware of how much I would love the class I have learned so much in just one semester of this class all of which can be applied to my future goals I especially loved all the hands on experience I received while working in the lab Toughest class The toughest class I have taken would be Cell and Molecular Biology It is a required course for all biology and neuroscience majors and was definitely the hardest class I have taken so far The material itself is hard but this class was also my first encounter with a Writing Intensive course and it definitely lived up to my expectations Favorite moments at Carthage My favorite moments at Carthage all relate to
