Research Assistant, Healthy Brain Network
Child Mind Institute
Erica Correa is a Research Assistant for the Healthy Brain Network. Her responsibilities include assisting with participant enrollment and the administration and scoring of assessments. Erica received a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience from Trinity College and is currently working towards a Master of Biomedical Science degree from Rutgers University. Her master’s thesis research focuses on understanding the mechanisms by which the basal forebrain, hippocampal and neocortical systems modulate learning, memory and vulnerabilities to develop anxiety disorders. Before joining the Healthy Brain Network, Erica worked as a Program Assistant for the Child Mind Institute’s Summer Program and later served as a counselor. While there, she assisted with Parent-Child Interaction Therapy sessions, which enabled her to work closely with clinicians from both the Anxiety Disorders Center and the Mood Disorders Center. Erica looks forward to aligning her research interests with that of the Healthy Brain Network and hopes to utilize the clinical and research experience she will gain in her pursuit of a doctoral degree in neuropsychology.
