Meet Julia Meyers-Manor

  • Ph.D., University of Minnesota
  • B.A., Macalester College

I teach courses in neuroscience, animal cognition, and learning. I run the Animal Cognition Lab, where students are able to work with rats and dogs to further understand both human and animal behavior. I also often bring in my own dogs to classes, giving the opportunity for students to work with the canines as well.
