Megan Sieg

B.S. & B.A., Northern Illinois University 2014

My research interests include behavioral neuroscience, neurotoxicology, and psychopharmacology. In the Eubig Lab, I study the effects of developmental exposure to drugs and environmental toxicants on adult behavior in rodents. I have collaborated with the EPA to study the effects of perinatal sub-clinical hypothyroidism on offspring in the novel object recognition task. Currently I am working on a collaboration with the Cincinnati Children's Hospital studying the effects of prenatal exposure to methamphetamine on performance in the 5-choice serial reaction time task.
