Emily Corrigan is a junior at St. Norbert College. Studying Biology and Spanish, Emily is very excited to participate in research in the psychology department under Dr. Lopez— an area outside of her major and minor.
“Nothing is more fascinating than learning to understand the human brain. By understanding the human brain, we can better understand each other and ourselves, which make us well-rounded human beings.”-Emily Corrigan
