Karyn M. Frick, Ph.D., is an associate professor of behavioral neuroscience in the Department of Psychology at Yale University. She received her B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College, and her M.A. and Ph.D. in psychology from the Johns Hopkins University. Her research focuses on the neurobiology of learning and memory, with particular interest in how hormones, aging and the environment affect these processes. She spends way too much time watching reality TV, including “Survivor,” and still feels that Boston Rob should have won “Survivor: All-Stars” (at least he got the girl!).
