Matthew Slayton 

Graduate Student (Duke)


I earned a BA in Neurolinguistics at Duke, an MA in Philosophy of Biology at the University of Chicago, and an MM in Music Composition at San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I am now a PhD Student in the Psychology and Neuroscience program at Duke University studying neural representation of concepts, memory, and Alzheimer’s Disease. My current project involves using TMS to ‘boost’ memory in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and then measuring the changes in brain network activity using fMRI.
