Portrait of Helene Sisti

Helene M. Sisti earned her Ph.D. in psychology with a concentration in neuroscience at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

She completed her M.Ed. in kinesiology with a concentration in sports psychology at Temple University in Philadelphia and her B.A. in physiological psychology at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Being a lifelong athlete, she is most passionate about understanding the nature of the mind-body connection. She has examined the brain from multiple perspectives, ranging from cellular models to human brain imaging studies.

Her research has centered on one simple question: how does the brain change when we learn new things? While she was a postdoctoral fellow in Europe (Katholieke Universiteit of Leuven, Belgium), she developed a novel motor coordination task to map learning in the human brain. Her research demonstrated the importance of the corpus callosum in bimanual learning and memory tasks. Before that, she investigated the role of adult neurogenesis in associative and spatial learning tasks. Dr. Sisti has been invited to referee several peer-reviewed journals in cognitive neuroscience, including Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, PLoS ONE, and Attention, Perception and Psychophysics. She is grateful to be part of a strong tradition of innovation and leadership at Norwich University in the heart of Vermont.
