Maya Barton Zuckerman, B.S.
I graduated from Brandeis University in May 2020 with a B.S. in Neuroscience and Psychology. During my time at Brandeis, I worked in research focused on cognitive neuroscience and developmental psychology with projects involving stress perception, executive function, and psychopathology. This culminated in my honors thesis project on bidirectional relations between executive function and autonomic stress reactivity. More broadly, I am interested in cognitive and affective processes, and the interactions between them. I am very excited to join the Napadow Lab and work on our current hyperscanning projects investigating the impact of patient/clinician relationship in chronic pain patients using fMRI and EEG. Outside of the lab, you’ll probably find me spending time with friends, cooking, and getting lost (literally) in art museums.
