Eitan Yehuda Scher


Born in West Orange, New Jersey, I began my undergraduate studies in the Holy Land at Bar Ilan University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, focusing on Jewish Mysticism. I ultimately completed my undergraduate studies at Rutgers University,  majoring in Psychology and completing a minor in Religion. Under the supervision of David Wilder, PhD., I designed an experiment and wrote an honor's thesis titled Exploring the Effects of Meditation and Self-Awareness on Temporal Judgements. Additionally, I volunteered in the Social Cognition Lab, working on projects relating to male responses to "masculinity threat." Lastly, at DBT-RU, I assisted a graduate student on his dissertation by providing technical support for an EMA relating to dialectical behavioral therapy skills.

After undergrad, I continued my research career at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC). As a member of the Paul García's Neuroanesthesia Lab, I consented patients and set up EEG electrodes mid-surgery to collect brainwave data. Additionally, I wrote a manuscript on the neurocognitive mechanisms and behavioral demonstrations of speech and language dysfunction; this paper is currently in preparation.
