Information About Dr.Stephen Allsop:

Dr. Stephen Allsop is a neuroscientist at the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and has been conducting biomedical research for over 10 years. He currently studies how social information is processed and integrated into the brain in hopes of elucidating the neural circuits responsible for fundamental social behaviors. His research is guided by the belief that deconstructing these mechanisms will provide a better understanding of how social groups function and offer more insight into the implications this has for the development and function of society at large.

Within the scientific community, Dr. Allsop has been involved in efforts to increase scientists’ awareness of social biases and exposure to tools that help increase cultural and intellectual diversity. Dr. Allsop plans to leverage his expertise in social neuroscience to study the current socio-political challenges confronting American society, as he believes that an interdisciplinary application of social neuroscience, psychology, and sociology can be informative to policymaking.

Dr. Allsop received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his B.S. in Biology, summa cum laude, from North Carolina Central University. He is completing a medical degree at Harvard Medical School.
