Isabelle Rosenthal graduated from Wellesley College in 2016 with a BA in Neuroscience, with a focus on cognitive and computational coursework. Her undergraduate thesis was based on work done with Dr. Ralph Adolphs and Dr. Damian Stanley, studying Theory of Mind in Autism Spectrum Disorder. After graduation, she worked in Dr. Bevil Conway's lab at the National Institutes of Health for two years, investigating color vision in humans and non-human primates, before coming to Caltech to pursue a PhD in Computation and Neural Systems. At Caltech, Isabelle joined Dr. Andersen's lab, where she now studies how the brain uses multimodal information to construct experiences of tactile sensations. She is especially interested in applying this knowledge to allow intra-cortical microstimulation in somatosensory cortex to elicit diverse and reliable feelings of touch.
