Welcome new team member

Michelle Kassel joined the Prechter Bipolar Research team as a Research Assistant in June 2010.  She is responsible for administering the neuropsychological testing.  In May of 2010, Michelle graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in Brain, Behavior, and Cognitive Sciences, and a subconcentration in Latin American and Caribbean Studies.  She has previously worked as a Research Assistant at the Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience Institute with Dr. Jill Becker, conducting research involving hormones and behavior.  Additionally, Michelle was a Research Assistant at the Language and Cognitive Architecture Lab in collaboration with Dr. Rick Lewis, where she conducted psycholinguistic research involving expectations while reading.  She is looking forward to contributing to the Bipolar Research Project, and feels it will be a valuable experience in preparation for graduate studies in clinical neuropsychology.
