Steven graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychological Science from Fitchburg State University in 2017. Before joining the FABLab he worked as a research assistant in the department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Steven is primarily interested in exploring the neural mechanisms underlying emotion and cognition. His work at Fitchburg State University in Dr. Michael Hove’s lab examined the effects of auditory and tactile bass stimulation on musical groove and movement, as well as the effects of aerobic exercise on dopamine levels and the role of dopamine in music appreciation.
