Mayra Gisel Flores-Montoya (M.A. Experimental Psychology, Ph.D. in Psychology with a concentration in neuroscience, The University of Texas at El Paso) teaches courses in Health Psychology 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 system modulates health, brain function, and behavior.
