‘Timing is Everything’ insists UW-Green Bay Psychology graduate Lorenzo Lones

“Timing is everything.”

You may call that phrase cliché. Lorzeno Lones calls it truth. The 2016 Universiity of Wisconsin-Green Bay Psychology graduate is currently a Neuroscience Ph.D. student at Washing University in St. Louis were he’s on a lab rotation, including the lab of Erik Herzog, Ph.D. studying “how cells in the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN) communicate to each other to generate circadian rhythms.”

Here’s the thing… it wasn’t that long ago when the 16-year old Lozeno Lones hit a “rebellious” stage, left his grandparents in Chicago in hopes of a “less-0dsicplined” lifestyle. He moved to Green Bay to live with his brother. And instead of a life on easy street, he new road led to unforeseen roadblocks’ culture shock, isolation and depression.

So how did he get from there to here? From few friends and failing grades to an honor student and the pride of UW-Green Bay Psychology?

Timing. “It’s everything,” he argues. in fact, the current research he and his mentor are conducting in the lab, can prove it!

Lones can tell you his tory better than it can be told. And he tells it really, really well in his PSITalk of a few weeks ago. PSI Talks are 8- to 10- minute engaging and thought-provoking presentations that link psychology concepts to life. His presentation is on YouTube. Watch it here.
