As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.

My name is Amanda Puckett, and I am currently a graduate student in Dr. Michael Kilgard's Cortical Plasticity Lab at The University of Texas at Dallas.

My main research interests are in how learning, perception and plasticity relate to one another. For more information please click on Research above and see my CV for links to abstracts.

If you are interested in working in our laboratory, you can e-mail me.

If you are a student in Developmental Neuroscience, you can click on the Courses tab above to download the reviews and presentations that I've posted. I'll also post the times and dates for the next review sessions there.
