We have someone new joining our team!  She is a neuroscience PhD student at the University of Iowa, and she studies speech perception – but let’s let the animation she created explain exactly what that means:

Among neuroscientists, there is a huge range of topics to study and methods with which to study them.  This is just one example to give you an understanding of what neuroscientists do on a daily basis.

Kayleen will be writing articles as well as creating animations and graphics for Knowing Neurons.  She is excited to join the team, and we are excited to have her!  Welcome, Kayleen!

Kayleen is obsessed with the brain. After majoring in neuroscience at Vanderbilt University, she went straight to a PhD program in neuroscience at the University of Iowa. She currently studies how our brains process speech. She measures electrical changes produced by the brain to understand how the gender of a person talking influences how we hear their speech. Outside the lab, she works to get others excited about science and occasionally plays the bassoon.

  1. Hi, I love the clear animations and read this blog out of pure curiosity and interest. Kayleen’s focus is particularly interesting as I speak many languages fluently and have always wondered about how my brain deals with them 🙂 So thanks and welcome!
