Mayra Gisel Flores-Montoya (Ph.D. in Psychology with a concentration in neuroscience) teaches courses in Health Psychology, Neuroimmunology, and Neuroscience.  Her research focuses on examining how early chronic exposure to low-level lead alters memory in children. She conducts interdisciplinary and translational research to answer this question and uses animal models examining effects of low-level lead on behavior and the early neuroimmune system. Another focus of interest is how the neuroimmune and peripheral immune system modulate cognitive function in homeostasis and disease states.
