Christina Reppucci, PhD
Visiting Assistant Professor of Neuroscience
I joined the Psychology Department of Wheaton College in 2021. With help from a team of enthusiastic undergraduate assistants (see below) and funding support from the Wheaton College MA Provost's Office, we are investigating the role of neuropeptide signaling in the regulation of juvenile social play behavior by the ventral tegmental area.
Outside of the classroom/lab you will often find me snapping photos of flowers, or cuddling with my cat.

I have been captivated by the link between music and its influence on cognition, such as changes in behavior, emotions, and memory! Recently, I expanded my interest to Multiple Sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases. I am curious to see what happens at a cellular level when these diseases are present. After Wheaton, I hope to pursue a Physician Assistant Degree and work in a neurology department, or pursue a medical degree in emergency neurology!
