Lise Eliot is a professor of neuroscience at the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University. Her research centers on brain and gender development, especially the role of neuroplasticity in shaping neural circuitry and behavior. Through both empirical and scholarly studies, she analyzes the interplay between innate biology, sociocultural influences, and individual experience in shaping our brains and behavior. Eliot is the author of two books: What's Going On in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life and Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow into Troublesome Gaps — And What We Can Do About It.
