Amy Shepherd is a PhD Student at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, studying Alzheimers disease. She trains mice with Alzheimers disease to use specialised touchscreens (like iPads for mice!) to investigate how they learn and remember in a way very similar to how we test human patients. She hopes that this will help us develop better drug treatments for Alzheimers and other brain diseases.
