Egzona Morina

PhD Student

Egzona is interested in figuring out the neural circuitry of sensory guided motor learning.

She completed her MSc in Neuroscience and Education from Columbia University in 2015. After graduating she was hired as the lab manager and technician in Dr Robert Froemke’s lab at New York University Langone Medical Centre. Her research there included examining the biochemistry and neural circuitry of oxytocin receptors in the mouse brain, and sucrose sensing by food-restricted mice. 

She joined the Murray lab in September 2017 and is currently working on developing a behavioural task that will provide more information about how anticipatory postural adjustments occur in motor movements, after multisensory integration. Eventually she would like to develop an anatomical map of the neural circuitry that enables these adjustments.
