After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, Wolff continued her education at the University of Regensburg (Germany), studying for a master’s degree in experimental and clinical neuroscience. She completed her thesis work at the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland on postsynaptic protein characterization (PSD-95) in schizophrenia. After its completion, she began her PhD in Neuroscience in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa (Canada). Changing directions, her work there centered on interindividual variability of complex cognitive tasks in healthy human electrophysiology (EEG). Employing methods of time-frequency analysis, neural dynamics and complexity, Wolff’s resulting work was awarded the Governor General’s Gold Medal for academic excellence. Currently, she is finishing her postdoctoral research fellowship at the Institute for Mental Health Research (Ottawa) where her work focuses on neural variability and dynamics in psychiatric disorders.
