Science

Don began neuroscience research in 2003 as a Junior in High School after meeting Dr. David Eagleman at a High School Science Day in San Diego.  His initial research focused on perceptual flexibility – how your perception of time and visual stimuli is not constant but instead, variable based on circumstances.  In 2008 Don completed dual degrees in Physics and Economics at Stanford University and after backpacking through South America, he moved to re-join the Eagleman Lab for Perception and Action at Baylor College of Medicine in November of 2008.  In the lab, Don uses function Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to investigate freewill and group social dynamics.  Don additionally experiments with creating sensory substitution devices; check out the research tab for more information.
