Cameron McKay, B.S.
B.S. -- Duke University, 2014, Neuroscience
Cameron graduated from Duke University in 2014 with a B.S. in Neuroscience. As an undergraduate, Cameron investigated the neural basis of attentional and cognitive-control mechanisms in the lab of Dr. Marty Woldorff in Duke’s Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. Using EEG and behavioral measures, Cameron studied the processes underlying how we filter distracting information from concurrent sensory stimuli. He conducted an independent study project in the Woldorff Lab his senior year at Duke, investigating the role of time-on-task on the neural cascade of conflict processing. After graduating, Cameron stayed on in the Woldorff Lab for one year as a lab manager and research associate. Cameron joined the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience at Georgetown in 2015. Presently, under the mentorship of Dr. Guinevere Eden, Cameron investigates the functional brain networks underlying the development of reading and arithmetic skills.
