My Favorite Re Word:

RECONSTRUCT.


I’ve always been interested in how things work. Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve been taking things apart (radios, computers, clocks), but it wasn’t until I was older that I realized that the real challenge lies with putting them back together. The human brain is the most complex object on our planet, and the desire to figure out how it works has driven all the way to a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology. As we discover more about how the brain, body, and environment guides thought and behavior, research will help us reconstruct dynamic and intelligent systems that will change the way we live, hopefully for the better.
