Tristan Bohlman, from Powell, was recently recognized as the best spring semester undergraduate neuroscience minor student from the University of Wyoming’s Neuroscience Program.

Each semester, a faculty committee chooses a graduating undergraduate student, who fulfills the requirements as a neuroscience minor, to receive the award. Recipients must exhibit excellence in their study of neuroscience. Bohlman received $100.

Bohlman graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physiology and minors in psychology, honors and neuroscience. She plans to apply to medical school this summer, while working as a doctor’s technician at an optometry office.

“I’m especially grateful for my education at UW, and the opportunities it will provide me as I pursue my dream of becoming a physician and caring for people,” she says.

The minor in neuroscience curriculum exposes students to the field through a variety of courses that include information about the structure of the brain, how it functions and the basics of sensation, learning, movement, emotion, sleep/wakefulness and species-typical behavior.
