Rebecca Saxe

Associate Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, MIT

While still a graduate student, Rebecca Saxe made a breakthrough discovery: there's a specific region in our brain that becomes active when we contemplate the workings of other minds. Now, at MIT's Saxelab, she and her team have been further exploring her grad-school finding, exploring how it may help us understand conditions such as autism. <br /> <br /> As Saxe delves into the complexities of social cognition, this young scientist is working toward revealing the enigma of human minds interacting.
