Postdoctoral Fellow, Neuroanatomy and Autism Research, Center for Neuroscience
Alexia Thomas, Ph.D., focuses on research that primarily characterize sleep and wakefulness patterns in multiple models of neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia. This work is being conducted using electroencephalogram (EEG), behavioral, and histological techniques. One major goal is to identify potential EEG translatable biomarkers. This project will additionally improve our general understanding of these complex neurologic disorders.
Thomas obtained a B.A. in biology from Rice University, and earned a Ph.D. in neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. While completing her dissertation, she studied behavior and evaluated how genetic and pharmacologic manipulations might alter behavior in a model of fragile X syndrome.
