I am a cognitive neuroscientist trained in visual cognition. I'm applying this neuroscience training to my interest in concussions. How can we use an interdisciplinary lens to better understand the full science of concussions – from culture to neurons? Why do people under-report? What are the overlooked social-cognitive roots of poor concussion behavioral heath and how can we change it? Finally, how can we use this research – and conduct it – in more equitable ways?
