Founder’s Message

Dear Sports Enthusiasts and Brainiacs,
We’re Angelina and Cameron Huang, your friendly neighborhood neuroscience nerds and putting green pros. Imaging two high school siblings, standing on the sweltering golf courses of Las Vegas, sweating not just because of the 110°F heat but also from the nerve-wracking putt that could make or break the tournament. Sound like a golf drama? It is, but with a twist.

The twist is our insatiable curiosity—our life’s caddie, if you will. We wondered, “What if we could hack into our brains to make that final putt less like Russian roulette and more like a magic trick we’ve perfected?” Thus began our fascinating journey from the sand traps of golf to the neural networks of the brain.

We are intrigued by Dr. David Eagleman’s books, Elon Musk’s Neurolink, and Dr. Huberman’s podcasts! If two golf-obsessed teenagers can fall in love with brain waves, synaptic transmissions, and dopamine releases, so can you. Our goal? To meld the neuroscience lab with the locker room, helping athletes everywhere unlock their inner Olympian and maybe even their inner philosopher.

So, we built our own clubhouse—virtually, of course. Welcome to “Neuroscience for Athletes”! Picture the Masters Tournament, but swap the green jackets for lab coats and the hole flags for MRI brain scans. Our launch was more thrilling than sinking a hole-in-one from 200 yards out. Over 200 junior golfers hopped on this ride during the Worldstar Junior Golf Championship. And now, we want you to join us too!

But we’re not stopping there. We’re diving headlong into the intricate web of neurons and synapses to dig up gems that could revolutionize our game. We’re tracking down the neuroscience world of Rory McIlroy and Serena Williams for brain-bending interviews. Expect to see us dissecting scholarly articles like they’re game replays and curating a list of must-read books that’ll make you rethink what ‘athlete’ means in the first place.

So if you’ve ever found yourself missing that perfect putt or fumbling that decisive catch and wondering, “Is it all in my head?” We’re here to tell you, it absolutely is! And that’s a good thing, because minds, like games, can be won.

Angelina Huang is a highly accomplished high school student, athlete, and leader with a stellar academic profile, extensive extracurricular involvement, and numerous awards and honors. With a 4.95 GPA, Angelina ranks first in her class of 690 students at Ed W. Clark High School.

Outside of the classroom, Angelina is a nationally top-ranked junior golfer and a passionate advocate for women in STEM. She founded the Nevada Chapter of Women in STEM and has been its president and ambassador since 2022, empowering and encouraging young girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Angelina is also the President of NV Girls in STEM to empower and encourage young girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Additionally, Angelina and her younger sister, Cameron Huang, founded Dentistry for Kidz, a nonprofit organization and podcast dedicated to educating young kids about oral health and raising awareness about the importance of oral health, good diet, and oral disease from a young age.

Angelina is also an accomplished author, having published the book “I Want to Play College Golf” on Amazon in 2021. The book was based on interviews with over 15 golf coaches and experts and raised over $17,000 through book sales, which Angelina donated back to various community charities. She has also conducted research on the effects of EEG and brainwave signals on golf putting performance and volunteered with the American Heart Association and Cancer Awareness Marathon.

In addition to her academic and extracurricular achievements, Angelina has received numerous awards and honors, including the Princeton Book Award, London Book Festival Winner, Los Angeles Book Festival, and Beach Book Festival Honorable Mentions in 2023. She has also been recognized as a National AP Scholar with Distinction, the Gold Medal of the 2022 President Volunteer Service Award, and the 2022 Youth Community Service Award by the Global Federation of Chinese Business Women.

Angelina founded Neuroscience for Athletes, an organization that bridges neuroscience, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, psychology, and statistics to assist athletes in achieving their peak performance.
