Research Lab Coordinator
Bronte graduated in May 2015 from the University of Southern California with her B.S. in Neuroscience and B.A. in Choral Music. While at USC, she spent some of her best moments at the Brain and Creativity Institute enacting space missions with kids (to help with the MRI), researching brain development in child musicians, and making jello brains for 4th-grade neurosurgeries. Now she is exploring her other long-time interest—language and the brain—working at Johns Hopkins with Dr. Kyrana Tsapkini to explore the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on the language functions of people with primary progressive aphasia. She enjoys working with all her patients and is her biggest hope (and inspiration) is that they are able to find enjoyment and purpose in life despite their illnesses. She is currently writing poetry about aphasia to help spread awareness of it.
