Dr. Day received her Ph.D. in 1994 from Cambridge University,
England. She spent 5 years as a post-doctoral fellow in the
laboratory of Dr. Huda Akil at the University of Michigan,
where she became interested in the neural circuitry involved
in stress responsiveness. She joined the Psychology Department
at the University of Colorado at Boulder in the Fall of 1999
as a research associate in Dr. Serge Campeau's laboratory.
She has been a member of the Society for Neuroscience since
Dr. Day is now a Senior Instructor in the Department of Psychology
and Neuroscience and as such does not supervise graduate students.
