Dr. Marianne Reddan is a Stanford-based neuroscientist, socialist, and poet. She completed her PhD with Dr. Tor Wager at CU Boulder where she specialized in machine learning applications to neuroimaging analysis and then began her post doc with Dr. Jamil Zaki at Stanford shortly after. She is interested in decoding--how the brain represents emotions and how these representations are modified through social interaction. She hopes that her research can benefit society by promoting mutual aid and transformative justice.
In this talk, we discuss her work "Attenuating Neural Threat Expression with Imagination" published in the Neuron, available here: Reddan et al., 2018, Neuron 100, 994–1005
