<p>These past few months, Dr. Zafir Buraei and I have been working on the effects of Presenilin on a class of ion channels known as TRP Channels. Studies conducted in the past depicts that Presenilin can also act as a low conductance leak channel for Calcium ions on the Endoplasmic Reticulum. TrpC channels are often activated by the efflux of calcium ions from the endoplasmic reticulum, a cellular structure that serves as storage for intracellular calcium.
<p>Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. It is defined by a decline in cognitive function, memory loss, and changes in behavior. In its advanced stages, symptoms escalate to confusion, aggression, and long-term memory loss. Presenilin is a major catalytic component that aids in this cleavage of APP, allowing the accumulation of plaques causing Alzheimer’s.

<p>Over the summer I had the opportunity to research Employee Satisfaction and its implications for an employee’s performance. I conducted secondary research on the topic by reviewing articles and survey statistics. The results were, for the most part, very interesting as I realized the importance of employee satisfaction in organizations. In fact, there is a business case for it as it was found that higher level of engagement leads to higher productivity, less absenteeism, and greater profit.
<div><span style="font-size: small">Throughout the course of the last month and a half, I have made a lot of progress towards the first part of my experiment. I had wanted to have 10 girls come in to be the stimuli for my experiment. I had each girl meet me, and choose an envelope with the directions for her. The directions would tell the girl to either go into a wallet and find an ID and put it back, or to take a VISA gift card from the wallet.
