Savannah Lightfoot

Cognitive Neuroscience (MSc 2)
Dr. M. Olmstead

Hi, I’m Savannah and I’m in my second year of my MSc in the Cognitive Neuroscience program at Queen’s. I completed my BSc in Neuroscience at Carleton University, where my focus was on how the reward pathway, specifically the nucleus accumbens, plays a role in the incubation of chocolate craving. Throughout my undergraduate degree I both worked and volunteered in my undergraduate supervisor’s lab. I am completing my master’s under the supervision of Dr. Olmstead in the MotiCog Lab where I am investigating how inflammation influences anhedonia and whether this interaction involves the endocannabinoid system.

Outside of my research, I am currently the Equity Committees Graduate Student Representative for AGSIP, and I work within the RISE initiative at Queen’s. I’ve TA’d PSYC 100 a couple times, and this year I will be TAing PSYC 205 and PSYC 370. 

I would love to answer any questions you have about the graduate school process, undergraduate courses, getting involved in the lab, honours thesis, or anything else you may have questions about. Book a chat and I’ll be happy to help you!
