Anna Schwartzberg graduated from Bowdoin College in 2017 with a B.A. in Neuroscience and Sociology. She is fascinated by the intersection of neuroscience, psychology, and sociology, and how researchers can use both biological and social markers to evaluate behavioral outcomes. At Bowdoin, she completed an investigational senior research project in the Sociology Department examining the concept of “world music” and the resulting potential for both cross-cultural collaboration and cultural appropriation. She spent a summer working as a research assistant in Dr. Andrea Tilden’s lab at Colby College, using immunocytochemistry to examine the influence of melatonin and other neurotrophic factors on neurite outgrowth and tubulin arrangement in crustacean x-organ neurosecretory neurons. The summer research team developed a unique system to measure neurite outgrowth in crustaceans. Anna worked at Nielsen Consumer Neuroscience as a summer intern and as a Consumer Neuroscience Research Analyst for a year after graduating from Bowdoin. There, she analyzed non-conscious emotional responses and attentional patterns of consumers using EEG, biometric, eye tracking, facial coding, and self-report data to understand consumer decision making and optimize client outreach to target audiences. Anna is now transitioning her career to clinical psychology from the business side of neuroscience, and at MGH, Anna is involved in studies investigating the use of a CBT-treatment app for OCD and social anxiety disorder. She is also involved in a study using virtual reality technology to examine and measure social interpretation biases in individuals with BDD. After her time at MGH, she plans to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology.
