Argentine biologist Diego Laplagne has had a fascination for nature and animals since his childhood. As his studies progressed, he was drawn to the most enigmatic aspect of nature: the mind. He earned his doctorate in biological sciences from the University of Buenos Aires. In 2009, he was awarded the Leon Levy Presidential Fellow in Neuroscience, a grant for independent research, which he pursued at Rockefeller University in the United States. His research is twofold: first, he maps the free behavior and metabolisms of rats. Subsequently, uses computers to correlate data on the functioning of the animals’ brains with behavioral information. This comprehensive approach allows for a deeper understanding of the intricate workings of the mind.
