Martha Robinson is a medical school escapee currently working on a PhD in Neuroscience at University College London. Her primary interest is in neural computation and how microcircuits contribute to information processing, with a focus on the cerebellum. When not working on brains or procrastinating, Martha spends a lot of time thinking about the public perception of science and how to fix it.
