Batts to the future

You probably know Shelley Batts from the eclectic neuroscience blog Retrospectacle, but what you might not know is that her online writing has gotten her nominated for a scholarship to help with her PhD. She’s a finalist with a number of other students but is the only neuroscientist, so if you want to vote for her, you can do so online.

Shelley studies the neuroscience of hearing to inform treatments for deafness, and, while maintaining a somewhat peculiar obsession with parrots, writes with great clarity in her engaging blog.

Your vote could help her win a scholarship which would substantially aid her studies.

Best of luck Shelley!
