Keaven Caro is an alumnus of the B.S. Behavioral Neuroscience and B.S. Biology programs with minors in Dance and Chemistry. He received two Gold Keys for academic excellence in both of his majors and was the President of the neuroscience and pre-medical clubs his senior year. He spent three undergraduate years working as a research assistant and then lab manager in Dr. Deirtra Hunter’s MMC Music, Mind, and Brain Lab, where they studied psychophysiological responses evoked by emotionally charged music in human participants. In his junior year, Keaven interned as a research assistant in the Morishita lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where they studied the synaptic plasticity and postnatal development of a neural circuit critical for the visual spatial attention faculty. This internship led to a part-time job as a senior in college, then a full-time job for two years after graduation.
