Hi Marianna, schools and FE colleges are reporting skyrocketing numbers of students who are self harming while the number with eating disorders has plateaued. What do you attribute this to and what as a society can and should we be doing to reduce the numbers of both?


I am a student at Tufts majoring in Cognitive and Brain Sciences interested in studying abroad at UCD next spring. Do you advise this? Do you have recommendations for classes to take/professors to talk to? Do you have any openings in your research lab for a possible volunteer position?

Hi Marianna, as someone who is currently studying Neuroscience and is thinking of pursuing a career in Medicine, do you have any advice for someone like me? What was your experience becoming a doctor whilst also carrying out your research?
