Celebrating Women's History Month: Neuroscientist Dr. Marian Diamond

Dr. Marian Diamond (1926-2017) was a Professor of Integrative Biology at the  University of California, Berkley. Among her remarkable contributions to neuroscience include the first demonstration that brains can physically change their structure in response to experience, coining the term "neuroplasticity". Dr. Diamond also famously studied the brain of Albert Einstein in the 1980's and demonstrated that Einstein's  brain had a larger concentration of glia than most.
