My name is Charles Clifford Moreno and I am an undergraduate Psychology major at San Diego State University (SDSU). Before transferring from San Diego City College, I was enlisted in the US Marine Corps and completed a 12-month tour to Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom that largely influenced the decisions that led me to today. In Fall 2013, I was first introduced to research at Dr. Paul Gilbert’s lab, the Center for Healthy Aging and Neurodegenerative Disease Research. As a research assistant, I administered a neuropsychological battery, coded twenty statement tests, completed a systematic review, and assisted graduate students in his lab on a variety of projects. After becoming a Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Scholar, sponsored by the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences, I have continued to be mentored by Dr. Gilbert to complete my senior Honors Thesis titled, "Recall and Recognition Discriminability in Healthy Aging." Upon graduating as an undergraduate, I will begin the University of Florida Clinical and Health Psychology Doctoral Program with an emphasis in neuropsychology under the direction of Dr. Russell Bauer.
