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.

A Life Of Brain
"Days in the life of a neuroscientist" I blog about what it's like to be a PhD student, a neuroscientist and an electrophysiologist. I often get asked by my (non-scientist) friends and family about what I do and my answer to them is this blog.

Socially Mindful
Socially Mindful is committed to exploring issues at the intersection of brain sciences and human social behavior. What is going on in the brain, and in the mind, when people process social messages? Some people just intuitively “get” others while other individuals are continually befuddled by social cues; what explains the enormous variability in socio-emotional intelligence? Answering all these questions involves harnessing the combined resources of psychology, neuroscience and the social sciences.

How to prevent a possible concussion from the ALS ice bucket challenge
The ice bucket challenge has swept the nation in an effort to raise awareness for ALS. However, there seems to have been a number of concussions (or mild traumatic brain injury) sustained from performing a seemingly altruistic act. Although some people may find the below video funny, concussions are a serious issue and can lead to serious consequences including executive dysfunction.Two recent meta-analyses (one examining neuropsychological performance while the other examining fMRI data) have […]

Does Motivated Counseling For Youths About Alcohol Work?

Most of those deaths are due to car accidents, murders, suicides or drowning. Motivational interviewing is a counseling technique developed in the 1980s that is sometimes offered to people […]
