Amy Shepherd

Amy Shepherd is a PhD Student at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, studying Alzheimer’s disease. She trains mice with Alzheimer’s 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 Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.
