At heart I am interested in why people do what they do. My training as a neuroscientist focuses my research interest on brain structure and function as it adapts to change across one’s life. I am addicted to the “aha” moment – when the light bulb goes off and a new understanding has crystallized into existence – in both me and those around me.
