Alex is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he has studied neuroscience for five years. His research investigates how different brain regions communicate using neurotransmitters and brain rhythms.

During his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Western Ontario, Alex studied the actions of neurotransmitters dopamine and acetylcholine on neuronal activity in the prefrontal cortex.

Alex joined the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory in 2019, where he is researching communication between entire brain circuits during cognitive behavior and short-term memory. In addition, his work has investigated the role of brain rhythms during anesthesia.

Alex looks forward to this opportunity to improve patient quality of life and accessibility through the services of Envisioning Access.
