I am gay and I am a PhD student in clinical neuroscience.//
For my PhD dissertation, I study the effect of SSRIs on functional network and neurochemical changes in the healthy human brain during motor training. My research is aimed at understanding how increased 5HT transmission can stimulate brain plasticity and what this might mean for depression and its treatment, as well as how such functional changes might benefit motor learning with an eye for future testing with stroke patients. I’m very passionate about medical neuroscience and about understanding how our brains work (and don’t work). I hope to develop my skills so I can study new treatments for a wide array of brain diseases.
