Crystal Leonard's picture


My name is Crystal Leonard and I'm a sophmore at Bryn Mawr. Several people in my immediate and extended family have various neurological disorders. As a result, I am aware of how the brain can cause unusual and/or disruptive behaviors in an individual, despite their consious desire to act "normally". I'm also knowledgeable of the current ways in which doctors use chemistry to attempt to alter the brains, and thus the behaviors, of these individuals.


3 questions that I would like to see explored this semester are:

1. What is the internal voice and how is it formed?

2. How do the chemical interactions in the brain lead to a person's "inner being/soul,etc"?

3. How does positive touching affect a person's brain chemistry/behavior?
