Today's podcast features two close friends of mine, Allyson Chrystal and Dr. Aaron Blaisdell. We recorded this podcast a couple of months ago, since then, we have learned that the Ancestral Health Symposium will be hosted in Seattle Washington. I will be presenting alongside both Dr. Blaisdell and Allyson Chrystal.

Allyson Chrystal is an occupational therapist and clinical instructor specializing in pediatrics. In her clinical work and research, Allyson has focused on sensory integration and self-regulation in children with behavioral and developmental disorders. Allyson is also currently completing a Master’s degree in Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition.

After receiving his BA and MA in Biological Anthropology (at SUNY Stony Brook and Kent State University, respectively), Dr. Blaisdell realized that animal cognition was even more interesting than dead humans. So he trekked on over to SUNY Binghamton for his Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology with Dr. Ralph Miller, where he studied learning, memory, and cognition in the rat.

Dr. Blaisdell is a Professor in Learning & Behavior and Behavioral Neuroscience in the UCLA Psychology Department. He presides over the Comparative Cognition Lab, studying cognitive processes in rats, pigeons, mice, hermit crabs, and humans.
