Zeynep M Saygin

Zeynep is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Nancy Kanwisher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She recently received her PhD in Systems Neuroscience under the mentorship of Professor John Gabrieli and Professor Rebecca Saxe at MIT. Prior to MIT she studied under Professor David Sheinberg at Brown University, where she received a BSc in Neuroscience, and then worked at Boston Children's Hospital under Dr Michael Rivkin, where she researched typical and atypical paediatric populations.  

Zeynep's work is focused on understanding how different regions in the brain work together to process information. She hopes to better understand the physical mechanisms in the brain that ultimately result in human behaviour, and how these change during development or in those with atypical vision or cognition.
