Tyler Anderson-Sieg received his B.S. in Biology and B.A. in Psychology from the University of Missouri – Columbia in 2016 and is currently finishing up his Ph. D. in Biomedical Science (with a neuroscience emphasis). Tyler’s research is focused on understanding how the neurotransmitter acetylcholine interacts with the emotional circuitry in the brain (specifically in the amygdala) with the goal of understanding how it affects our experience of emotions. He is passionate about learning new things and making new findings from cutting edge science easily accessible to non-expert audiences through both written and oral modes of communication. After graduating with his Ph. D., Tyler is eager to turn his passion into a career by becoming a science or medical writer.
