It might sound unusual that a researcher mainly focused on population genetics and evolution in marine systems would be assisting with a study on trees in Canada, but there are more similarities than you think.
Our brains are continually developing – led by a combination of neurological changes and environmental factors – well into adolescence. According to Heather Brenhouse, assistant professor of psychology at Northeastern, there’s a lot of mystery surrounding why the brain evolves the way it does and what factors cause changes in development.
Kenneth Henderson can point to the moment when his career spun in an exciting new direction: a five-month industry placement in London prior to his senior year of college. Here, the new College of Science dean discusses the importance of experiential education and his vision for the college.
