Jennifer Honeycutt

Northeastern University
Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Dr. Jennifer Honeycutt is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Developmental Neuropsychobiology Laboratory at Northeastern University under the mentorship of Dr. Heather Brenhouse. Before arriving at Northeastern, Dr. Honeycutt completed her B.A. in Psychology at Colby College, and received her Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Connecticut. Her dissertation work characterized the developmental trajectory of Parvalbumin-containing neurons within the hippocampus following chronic ketamine administration in a rat model of schizophrenic-like cognitive impairment. Currently, Dr. Honeycutt’s postdoctoral research aims to elucidate the neural and behavioral consequences of early life adversity across the lifespan in both males and females. In addition to this work, Dr. Honeycutt has recently been awarded a Brain and Behavior Research Foundation NARSAD grant, which she is using to develop a novel and highly-translational fMRI assay to better understand the aberrant corticolimbic connectivity seen following early adversity.
