Greg is a “DIY neuroscientist” and the CEO and co-founder of Backyard Brains. Greg has a Ph.D. in neuroscience but is working to make this degree irrelevant. His goal is to develop tools and technologies to allow advanced neuroscience discoveries to be made by amateurs while allowing teachers from middle school on up to directly explore the brain. Understanding the brain remains a great challenge, both to professional neuroscientists and the general public alike. Twenty percent of the world has a brain disorder, and there are no known cures. By getting the public engaged in Neuroscience, Backyard Brains hopes to bring about a neuro-revolution!
