While children are free to pick either week, we strongly recommend a balanced exposure to the content over both weeks.
Goldy Yadav is a Fulbright Fellow at the National Institutes of Health (USA) and is pursuing a PhD in Cognitive Science at the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar. She has a Master's in Cognitive Science from IIT Gandhinagar, and a Bachelor's degree in Zoology (H) from the University of Delhi.
Goldy has a keen interest in understanding how the human brain works and is actively involved in neuroscientific research. Her work focuses on how humans learn new skilled actions, and the brain processes that facilitate such learned behavior. Through her work, she has also demonstrated how retention of a newly acquired memory can be enhanced.
Goldy believes this is the most exciting time to be involved in the field of neuroscience as we are uncovering something truly fascinating about the brain, its functions and the causes behind a number of neurological/psychological disorders. A lot, however, still remains unknown about this enigmatic tissue between our ears!
Goldy engages with Gifted students on topics related to Neuroscience.
