In the Forbes piece, she says of her work, “I didn't want to just understand the human brain, I wanted to study a phenomenon called neuroplasticity; how the brain changes and adapts. Specifically, I wanted to study cognitive enhancement and study ways we can improve cognitive performance in a meaningful way. It's a little Sci-Fi, but that's super fascinating to me."
