Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am from Los Angeles, California, where the sun always shines and the beach is gorgeous! I plan on majoring in Biological Engineering (Course 20). Before that, however, I lived in Ennis, TX, a small town near the Dallas area. I love being a part of things, which is why I'm involved in numerous activities all over campus including intramural tennis, writing for the undergraduate research journal and volunteering at Massachusetts General Hospital (yes, I suppose I'm premed). If you want to know more about me, don't be afraid to ask!

This course will serve as an introduction to the field of neuroscience. You probably know what the brain is, but what exactly does it do? You've probably heard of neurons, but how exactly do they work? We'll give you the fundamental answers to these questions so you can come to understand exactly how amazing this body system is. If time permits, we'll try to jump into higher level topics such as dreaming, the senses, emotion, language acquisition, memory and mental illness.

Want to know how gang leaders successfully run their drug cartels? Want to better your chances in the next million dollar game show? This class will give a lighthearted introduction to all the topics mentioned above and more including decision making, Nash, Perfect, Sequential Equilibrium, Social/peer pressure/political/economic modeling, Making threats, Signaling, and Reputation, Bargaining/Auctioneer Theory, and a little bit of Psychological Games.
