Allie Pataro

Hello, my name is Allie Pataro and I am a Junior undergraduate student at MSU studying neuroscience. My concentration is cognitive and computational neuroscience, and I am particularly interested in the basis of motivation and learned behaviors, whether this is with complex human behavior or simple behaviors shown in many species. Outside of school I volunteer in different areas with kids and animals, and I spend as much time outdoors as I can with hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking.
