Andrew Boreland, Graduate student
The human brain, and the consciousness it gives rise to, enables robust sensation and interpretation of the universe. Being the inquisitive species that we are, our yearning for truth has put us at the door of an era where we can now take the next step in finding out not only who we are, but more importantly, how we are. How is it that we can exist and perceive this world? The human brain is arguably the most complicated astoundingly beautiful phenomenon to ever exist. It is my devotion to uncover the truth of the brain, to understand its development and dysfunction, and to ultimately redefine the therapeutic space for those afflicted by brain injury and other neuropathology.
