Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury
Vincenzo de Lillo is a master student in the Department of Psychology’s Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience at George Mason University. He is part of the Flinn lab under Dr. Jane Flinn where he spends his time investigating Alzheimer’s disease and potential venues to ameliorate the deficits caused by traumatic brain injury.
Vincenzo, formerly a BAM student, completed his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at George Mason University, where he joined Dr. Flinn’s lab in his senior year while completing graduate level classes.
Currently, Vincenzo is studying the effects of mild repetitive traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) on mice’s locomotor activity. For his thesis, Vincenzo hopes to examine whether young blood plasma can reverse some of the motor deficits induced by rmTBI.
