Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi everyone! my name is Aryaa and I'm thrilled to be teaching this course this year. I am a second-year at the University of Rochester, majoring in Neuroscience and minoring in Medical Anthropology. Outside of classes, I love spending time with my friends, listening to music, and gardening.The human brain is absolutely fascinating, especially when you think of its complexity and how much is unknown about such a critical structure. I hope this course is a fun and interesting introduction to learning more about the brain!
