Brittany Bushnell: A Neuroscientist With a Brain Tumor

Just after beginning a graduate program in neuroscience, Brittany Bushnell gets an unexpected look at her own brain.

Brittany Bushnell has a BS in psychology from the University of Washington, and is currently working on her PhD in neuroscience at New York University. She is currently studying the neural basis of amblyopia -- a developmental disorder of the visual system. Outside of work, she takes aerial circus classes and grew up racing BMX bikes with her family. She lives in NYC with her husband Maurice.
