Fly on the wall
If you’re wondering how fruit fly research could be useful for humans, you are not alone. I started this blog to introduce fly science to a broader audience. I hope to make current research in flies more approachable to non-fly-scientists, as well as demonstrate how basic research in this animal model is translatable to higher organisms, including humans. I will also write about my experiences working in a fly lab so you can get an idea of a ‘day in the life’ of a researcher and her flies. This blog contains three types of posts: Fly Life: What’s it like to work with flies? I’ll go into detail about the flies themselves, how researchers perform different types of experiments, and how various genetic tools work. Breaking research: I’ll summarize recently published original research articles that are advancing our basic scientific understanding. Translational findings: I’ll provide examples of how research in fruit flies has translated to mammalian systems, including those of humans.

Traveling Neuroscientist
It’s a Travel/Academic Lifestyle/ Neuroscience blog: I started this blog to keep in touch with family and friends. My mother is an english teacher and my first love (before I discovered neuroscience) was writing and storytelling. Here you will find personal stories, with feminist undertones, science, history, and an occasional living abroad tip, academic or science career resource, or even a recipe. Because I am a neuroscientist, I talk about almost everything, from that perspective. Subscribe to this blog if you are interested in learning about neuroscience topics, in the context of the daily life of an international science student.

Chaos and Creative Expression
“The very impulse to write, I think, springs from an inner chaos crying for order, for meaning, and that meaning must be discovered in the process of writing or the work lies dead as it is finished.” Arthur Miller Creative people and writers about the creative process often say creative work is a way to […]

Mindful Emotional Eating – a Humanistic Harm Reduction Approach
Here’s a question that’s a lot on my clinical mind: “What do clients want and how do I help them get what they want?” This very question is at the core of humanistic harm reduction (HHR). When my client presents with concerns about “emotional eating,” I ask myself the same question. When you, as a […]

Quieting the Voice of the Devil on Your Shoulder
I often equate having schizophrenia to having a little devil on my shoulder that likes to whisper nasty stuff in my ear. He’s a cunning little jerk, too. If he senses a vulnerability or the potential for anxiety he’ll start screaming. In the eight years I’ve lived with the illness I’ve come to recognize these […]
