Professor of Neuroscience

Lise Eliot is Professor of Neuroscience at the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science. Her research centers on neural plasticity — the effect of practice and experience on brain circuitry — and is currently directed toward public education about brain and gender development. She received a BA in History & Science from Harvard, a PhD in Cellular Physiology & Biophysics from Columbia University, and completed a post-doctoral research fellowship in neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Eliot has published more than 60 works, including experimental studies in cellular neurophysiology, meta-analyses of brain sex difference, and two highly-praised books, “What’s Going On in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life (Bantam)” and “Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow Into Troublesome Gaps – And What We Can Do About It” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Through both empirical studies and broad scholarship, she analyzes the interplay between innate biology, sociocultural influences, and individual experience in shaping our brains and behavior across the lifespan.
