    Instructor Name Karen Bales
    Credit Type Natural Science
    Short TitleAging in Monkeys
    Complete Description of 199The mission of the University of Arizona neuroscience group (supervised by Dr. Karen Bales) at the California National Primate Research Center is to gain a better understanding of the processes and mechanisms of cognition and aging. Duties As part of the UofA neuroscience group at the CNPRC, the intern will assist with data entry and data analysis of several on-going research projects on the aging brain. These projects include behavioral, electrophysiological, and neuroimaging studies that examine: 1) how sensory degradation during aging impacts cognition; 2) how the spatial navigation network changes with age. The intern will become familiar with electrophysiological evoked potential measurements and neuroimaging methods. The student would also assist with testing monkeys in a 20 ft run which would include assisting with treat preparation, cleaning run cage and test cage, transporter animals and daily data entry. one
