My name is Shamay. I'm a product manager, neuroscience enthusiast, and writer.
With Brain Street, the goal is to make knowledge from cognitive neuroscience more approachable and applicable to everyday life.
Think of this as the opposite of pop psychology - I strive to be accurate and skeptical in how I interpret the science. Here's the pitch: I'll handle the hours of research and you get the key takeaways without any of the work.
So far, I've been writing about music, digital wellness, tech ethics, and the intersection of neuroscience and technology.
Friday Brainstorm Newsletter
I also write a bi-weekly email newsletter and the best way to keep up with my writing. I’ll be sharing things I’m learning about, ideas I’m exploring, and powerful concepts from cognitive neuroscience applicable to everyday life.
I promise to keep it short, simple, and always interesting. Sign up below:
