Caitlin Taylor received her B.S. in Psychology and B.A. in French from Indiana University-Bloomington, and her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Georgetown University. Caitlin’s graduate work focused on investigating age- and experience-dependent modulation of coherent visual motion processing using functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). As a postdoctoral fellow in the Jacobs Lab, Caitlin uses MRI to investigate the effects of oral contraceptive use on the brain, as well to study the effects of sex hormones on the hippocampus. She is the recipient of a 2018 SAGE Junior Fellowship and the 2019 Harvey L. Karp Discovery Award. Outside of the lab, Caitlin is interested in sharing her love of science through science education and outreach.
