I am a native of Brooklyn, New York. After obtaining a Bachelors degree in Psychology at Brooklyn College, I continued on into graduate school to learn more about the brain. Currently, I am a fourth year graduate student in the Neuroscience department at Stony Brook University. I have a specific interest in how behaviors, including exercise, affect the brain on a cellular level and how these changes may relate to subsequent enhancements of cognition.
