​Psyche Loui, Ph.D.
Background: Bevil Conway, Ph.D. is an associate professor of neuroscience at Wellesley College. Conway is a visual neuroscientist and artist who examines the neural basis of color using physiological, behavioral, and modeling techniques. His lab explores color as a potential model system for investigating depression and investigates mechanisms of perception and cognition in alternative models like rodents with high visual acuity.

Psyche Loui, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of psychology and of neuroscience and behavior at Wesleyan University. Loui’s research aims to understand the networks of brain structure and function that enable musical processes: auditory and multisensory perception, learning and memory of sound structure, sound production, and the human aesthetic and emotional response to sensory stimuli.
