Brainbowconnection’s author received her PhD in Neuroscience from Emory University in 2007 and is an internationally-recognized neuroscientist with over 10 years of experience in research innovation in world-leading academic scientific research laboratories.  Her past work explores a wide range of research areas from psychiatric disorders (depression, ADHD, drug addiction) to movement neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease). Her postdoctoral research focus was on Parkinson’s disease recording the activity of individual cells in the brain. Her current research focuses on placebo and psychogenic movement disorders, and her broader interests include the impact of neuroscience research on society. She feels it is critical to make science accessible for general audiences and the links included in the blog are meant to be accessible and informative references for the reader to follow-up with to draw their own conclusions.  While bioethics is coming to the forefront in society, topics related to the ethical implications and applications of neuroscience remain on the backburner. This blog aims to serve and encourage an exploration of what neuroscience findings will mean for policy and society.
