Zach Redding, PhD Psychology 21

2021 Graduate Achievement Award recipient

Zach ReddingFor his master’s project, Redding studied pharmacological approaches for reducing attentional lapses in rats. This work was presented at the international meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, and his paper was published in the journal Psychopharmacology.

Building on his thesis work with Professor Karen Sabol, Redding’s dissertation investigated a complex relationship between the glutamate and norepinephrine systems in the mediation of attention. His understanding of the unique characteristics of neural signaling within specific attention networks led him to generate novel hypotheses regarding the combined effects of drugs that target both chemical systems. Redding presented initial findings from his dissertation research at the Society for Neuroscience Global Connectome in January.
