Upcoming Broadcasts

Join us on Wednesday, August 17 @ 12pm EST for an enlightening conversation with Dr. Bruno Sauce as he shares his research on the impact of digital media on children's intelligence. Bruno is an Assistant Professor of Biological Psychology at the Vrije University in Amsterdam. He has worked on multiple different topics, including brain plasticity, cognitive interventions, and childhood development. Right now, his research focuses on the gene-environment interplay of cognitive abilities. He wants to know the impact of certain experiences on the way we think and learn, and how much this depends on our different genetic backgrounds. The experiences of growing up in wealth/poverty, playing video games, and going to primary school are all factors that he is currently studying. Bruno is originally from Brazil, where he earned a bachelor's in Biology and master's in Genetics and Evolution at the Universidade Federal de São Carlos. He later moved to the US and earned a master's in Psychology and a Ph.D in Neuroscience at Rutgers University, and then was a postdoc researcher in Sweden at Karolinska Institute.
