Anna R. Moore

Name: Anna R. Moore

Position: Post-doc

Education: B.S. James Madison University
Ph.D. University of Connecticut


Hometown: Wytheville, VA

Personal Interests: I enjoy experiencing new things, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

If I weren't a scientist I'd be... a baker.

Research Interests: I am most interested in the way the brain develops and forms functional neuronal networks. More specifically, I am interested in the emergence of electrical properties in young, immature neurons and the role electrical activity plays in neuronal maturation and synapse development.
