For decades, Shatz has been at the forefront of neuroscientific research by exploring the processes of the brains’ visual centers and its early development. Her advances in both these realms not only show the amazing capacity of science to comprehend the incomprehensible, but also the infinite potential of women neuroscientists. It is the role of scientists like Shatz to support the involvement of women in the neuroscience community, and to endure as a role model for female scientists of the future.
