Sophie Blitsman

High School Research Assistant

I am a junior at Great Neck South High School, enrolled in a research program that allows me to spend a period of my school day investigating a topic that I find enticing. I have previously focused on cognitive and social psychology, however I recently changed my focus to neuroscience. Specifically I want to learn more on the functions and applications of the amygdala and hippocampus.

 

Fun fact: Although I was born and raised in New York, English was not my first language - it was Russian!
