Marian Diamond is a pioneering scientist and educator considered one of the founders of modern neuroscience. She and her team were the first to publish evidence that the brain can change empirically and improve with abundance, now known as nerve endurance. His work on Albert Einstein's brain helped fuel the ongoing scientific revolution in understanding the role of glial cells in the brain. Her integrated biology courses on YouTube were the second most popular college course in the world in 2010. She is professor of anatomy at the University of California, Berkeley. Another published study explores the differences between the cortex of male and female rats, the link between positive thinking and immune health, and the role of women in science.
