Jason Adams is an MD/PhD student at UC San Diego. He completed his PhD in the Department of Neurosciences and the lab of Dr. Alysson Muotri. Jason is particularly interested in how microscopic neurological systems, such as neuronal structural and functional interconnectivity, manifest as macroscopic phenomena, including memory, cognition, and behavior. In addition, he is interested in neural structure across the lifespan, from development to degeneration. He is currently completing the final years of medical school at UCSD.
