Victoria Jade Ende
Hi, I am Victoria! I am a prospective Neural Science major, on the Pre-Med track, coming a long way from Long Island, NY. I have worked at NYU Langone, in Dr. Michael Halassa’s Lab, dealing with how the brain can filter sensory information through the thalamus and the inhibitory thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN). I worked to refine mice behavior through training, then carried out perfusions, observing brain slices through immuno-histology and microscopy. I have been working in the Suzuki Lab for over a year, first with a graduate WINS member, Alexandra McHale on her senior thesis concerning with the positive impacts of meditation. Now, I am working on my own DURF project asking how a physically active lifestyle influences memory, stress and mood in university students. I am also a College Leader, and part of SUNS and NOGN. Outside of school, I am very interested in fitness: any inside or outside activities. I love to write poems, play instruments (guitar, piano and drums), and explore all the city has to offer!
