Research: 

Kyle Kainec, recipient of a $300 Spring Travel Award, is a PhD
candidate in the Neuroscience and Behavior Program who graduated from
The Ohio State University. Working with Dr. Rebecca Spencer he utilizes
fMRI, DTI, and high-density EEG, in order to investigate age-related
changes in procedural learning consolidation following sleep. In
addition he is exploring targeted memory reactivation, in which learned
sensory cues are used to strengthen memories in the sleeping brain, to
explore how memory reactivation during sleep affects related memory
traces.
