Brandon Woods

Neuroscientist, Musician, Actor & Harvard PhD Candidate

For as much diversity as there is in the world, there is an equivalent depth of potential in the human brain. As a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School, Brandon’s research draws insights into the brains ability to extract information from the world around us. Amazingly, the brain is equipped with billions of information processing entities known as neurons. Neurons create everything you see, hear, an experience through trillions of fluid connections called synapses. Importantly, the synapse is a biological hallmark of the vast potential that lives within us all. With more synapses in the human brain, than stars in the night’s sky, the potential that dwells within us is of cosmic proportions. And from this perspective, we all come bearing gifts for the world to marvel.

Brandon’s life work has been to realize such potential not only through his work as a neuroscientist, but also as a person devoted to learning. As a multi-talent, his career lies at an intersection of science, music, film, writing, and education. Consequently, his life story is about pushing the boundary of what is possible. For him, neuroscience is more than a set of principals arising from data backed premises. Rather, neuroscience is a discipline that we can come to appreciate and apply in our daily lives as we reach for our dreams. If we can come to understand the amazing biological phenomena that exists within our brain, then we may come to know the genius that lies within.

Through Brandon’s passion for molecular biology, and his unique talents to inspire and communicate, he is certain to provide you with an educationally motivating experience that will consume your curiosity for neuroscience, personal development, and the wonders of biology.
