Dr. Norris is a graduate of the Washington University School of Medicine’s Medical Scientist Training Program and completed his residency and neuroanesthesia fellowship training as a member of the Department of Anesthesiology’s Scholars Program.
I like doing cool neuroscience experiments and making novel discoveries. In my free time I like to research and trade stock indexes and ETFs, play pickleball, and watch and attend NBA games.
Abraham has a Master’s degree in Psychological Science with a focus in behavioral pharmacology from California State University San Marcos. He is interested in studying how stress and reward-seeking behaviors affect goal-oriented motivated behaviors such as reward and drug-seeking, active coping versus passive coping, and the mechanisms of action involved during the depiction of these behaviors. With the long-term goal of understanding how the maladaptation of these behaviors can lead to the development of mood, anxiety, and addiction disorders.
I am a graduate from the University of Missouri – St. Louis with a Bachelor’s in psychology as well as a certificate in neuroscience. I am interested in various realms of neuroscience ranging from biological to clinical. My passion is to make the world a better place than I found it. I am an advocate for mental health and know that we are currently in need of solutions. I believe that ingenuity and compassion through research is the key to solving these issues. I see a future where mental health and wellbeing are within our reach.
Juan completed her PhD degree in Acupuncture and Moxibustion from Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chengdu, China. She studied the mechanism of purinergic signaling in acupuncture therapy-mediated analgesia and anti-inflammation effect. Then she joined Dr. Norris’s lab in March 2023 for postdoctoral training with an interest in how the neural circuits involved in regulating metabolism, sleep, weight gain, and circadian biology by using different kinds of approaches including fiber photometry, optogenetics, chemogenetics, indirect calorimetry, EEG, behavior assay, etc. While not in lab, she likes running and walking in Forest Park and also trying to learn how to play guitar.
