Megan deBettencourt

M.A., Princeton University (2012)
B.S., Columbia University (2010)

Megan is broadly interested in the plasticity of higher cognitive functions, such as sustained attention and memory, and she uses real-time fMRI neurofeedback to try to alter or perturb cognitive states and affect behavior. She was going to study math or physics but started working in a neuroengineering lab as an undergraduate and got captivated by questions about the mind and brain.
