Olga Lositsky


B.S., McGill University (2010)

Olga is interested in how we learn to represent new tasks and how the way in which we structure our memories reflects our assumptions about the world and influences how we generalize our knowledge to new situations. Her love of neuroscience began in high school, when she realized that she could combine her interests in philosophy, math, physics, and psychology to understand the brain. She became fascinated with the question of why two people can interpret the same situation differently and how their assumptions restrict the kinds of creative solutions they can find.
