Explain Things To Me: Neuroscientist Kate Fehlhaber

Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Anna Akana y Brad Gage for their podcast called “Explain Things To Me,” a show that features conversations with experts in various fields, ranging from NASA engineers to Screenwriters.  This time, we talked about neuroscience!

Kate Fehlhaber studies eyeball tissue under a microscope in a pitch black room while wearing night vision goggles.  It’s a pretty hardcore look for a someone who also worked on studying what causes Parkinson’s Disease, and created ways to explain neuroscience through easy infographics.

Take a listen here:

Kate Fehlhaber

Kate graduated from Scripps College in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Neuroscience, completing the cellular and molecular track with honors. As an undergraduate, she studied long-term plasticity in models of Parkinson’s disease in a neurobiology lab at University of California, Los Angeles. She continued this research as lab manager before entering the University of Southern California Neuroscience graduate program in 2011 and then transferring to UCLA in 2013. She completed her PhD in 2017, where her research focused on understanding the communication between neurons in the eye. Kate founded Knowing Neurons in 2011, and her passion for creative science communication has continued to grow.
