Project description

Isha came to Polygence already with a serious interest in neuroscience. She had started a non-profit earlier in her high school years, dedicated to teaching middle school students basketball based on neuroscientific principles. She came to Polygence hoping to hone her interest in a more academic manner. With the support of her mentor, Isha dedicated her Polygence project to writing a research paper. The precise topic wasn't clear from the start, but as they continued to read the scientific literature she honed in on the connection between Schizophrenia and Neuroplasticity.

Student review

Stephen was extremely helpful throughout the 10 sessions and consistently provided really good feedback. Now, I can look through a research paper without even having to read it all. I can see just the parts that are going to be of most value to me.
