Spencer Bowles, PhD
Spencer earned a BS in Neuroscience and Psychology at Regis University. He obtained his Ph.D. in the lab of Dr. Cristin Welle where he studied the role of cholinergic signaling in endogenous and VNS-enhanced motor learning. He used chronically implanted stimulating and recording electrodes, in vivo optogenetics, and markerless kinematic tracking to explore the changes in neural activity and behavior that accompany motor learning. Spencer will be continuing his post-doctoral training in the lab of Dr. Mackenzie Mathis.
