  • Benjamin Rein

    Benjamin Rein

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    BioBen Rein, PhD is a postdoctoral scholar in the lab of Dr. Robert Malenka. In his doctoral research, Ben investigated how genetic risk factors for autism spectrum disorder alter synaptic transmission in the prefrontal cortex. Specifically, his work focused on copy number variations affecting the 16p11.2 gene locus, and identified key molecular mechanisms underlying social deficits in mouse models of 16p11.2 deletions and duplications. In his current work with Dr. Malenka, he is investigating the neural basis of empathy, and mechanisms by which empathic behavior can be enhanced.

    Outside of the lab, Ben shares educational science videos on social media with the overarching goal of making science more clear and accessible to the public. He also seeks to curb misinformation on these platforms by debunking viral videos containing inaccurate claims. Through his social media channels, Ben offers guidance for students pursuing careers in science (through a video series called "Scientips") and is the Founder & President of the Aspiring Scientists Coalition, an international organization designed to provide career guidance for students in science.

  • Jessica Ross

    Jessica Ross

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    BioDr. Ross is a research fellow for Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford Medicine and a Data Science fellow for the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS). Her work uses transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS) and electroencephalography brain recording (EEG) for research on neuromodulation-based psychiatric treatments. Her mentor is Corey Keller MD PhD in the Personalizing Neurotherapeutics Lab. She is also affiliated with Harvard Medical School/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center where she uses TMS-EEG to explore aberrant brain plasticity, cortical reactivity, and connectivity in older adults with cognitive disorder and healthy adults, under the guidance of Mouhsin Shafi MD PhD and Alvaro Pascual-Leone MD PhD.
