Mashable showcases Nanthia Suthana on an episode of “How She Works”


With neuroscience, inspiration struck Nanthia Suthana at the age of 19. She read about a famous case in which a man underwent brain surgery that robbed him of the ability to form new memories, and she sprung into action. 

Now, Dr. Suthana is a neuroscientist at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and uses VR to study the brain and understand what happens when new memories are formed. 

On this episode of How She Works, Dr. Nanthia Suthana shows us what it’s like working in this field and how she’s using virtual reality to ultimately understand the brain.
