Elizabeth Gaillard

Lab Manager & Research Assistant

Elizabeth received her B.A. in Neuroscience with a minor in Literature from Hamilton College (‘23), where she completed an honors thesis investigating the role of parasympathetic activity, depressive symptomatology, and attentional deployment in affective evaluation of images. As a research fellow, she adapted and implemented an additional project examining how changing task demands govern the influence of implicit and explicit learning on behavior. Elizabeth is interested in how individual differences interact with the external environment to influence evaluative processes and the behavioral responses these processes motivate. She is particularly interested in the physiological phenotypes and environmental factors that promote more adaptive perceptions of and responses to stressful conditions.
