Evita Conway joined Caron Renaissance as a neurofeedback technician in 2018. Having graduated with a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and behavior, she finds the job a perfect fit. While she was a student at Florida Atlantic University, she did research into using artificial intelligence to diagnose mood disorders via eye tracking, winning the 2018 Florida Blue Health Innovation Competition. She was also the manager of the university’s Visual Mind Lab, which conducts behavioral and computational work in vision science, learning, and memory.
That background informs her work and motivates her interest in her job. “The initial evaluations we do for each new patient gives them an objective picture of their brain processes. It validates their experience and it allows us to show them how neurofeedback can improve their symptoms.”
She plans to attend graduate school and pursue a career in clinical neuropsychology
