Jonathan D. Grinstein’s wonder for the human mind and body led him to an undergraduate education in Neural Science and Philosophy and a doctorate in Biomedical Science. He has studied how the brain forms memories and how individual cells make decisions to generate different body parts. His writing focuses on the intersection of neuroscience and mental health.
