Elvisha joined the Near Lab in January 2017 as a research assistant. She completed her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from McGill University in Fall 2016. Her previous research includes work in: 1) developmental expression of GABA and NMDA receptors and NKCC1 and KCC2 co-transporters in chick embryo brain and 2) neural substrates underlying effects of acute cardiovascular activity on motor learning and memory. 

She is currently studying the effects of naproxen on neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, and metabolism in transgenic rodent models of Alzheimer's disease using methods of MRI, proton MRS, and Carbon-13 MRS.
