ALUMNI UPDATE: Eric Wassermann '70

I am a neurologist and a Principal Investigator at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in Bethesda, MD...

where I study how the human brain learns and adapts and how (just maybe) to make those processes more efficient in patients and healthy people. I have taken multi-year excursions into helping to develop widely used techniques for stimulating the brain with magnetic pulses, and working on medical counterterrorism problems for the George W. Bush administration. My college sweetheart and I have a 26-year-old daughter in Galway, Ireland, and a 40- foot sailboat on the Chesapeake, both of which bring us great joy and provide efficient outlets for time and cash. Retirement is no longer an abstract concept, but I will keep plugging away for a few years. My email address is very easy to find using the info above, and I encourage anyone who wants to get in touch to use it.
