Leah Newcomer

Research Technician II

Born and raised in St. Louis, I graduated from Brown University in May of 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I am interested eventually in attending medical school, but have been pursuing my research interests post-graduation through work with the Human Connectome Project and now the CCP lab. My excitement about research is fueled by scientific and philosophical curiosity which has led me to explore questions in the field of cognitive neuroscience, specifically related to emotion processing and consciousness.
