Jarrett obtained his Ph.D. in Anatomy and Neurobiology from Boston University School of Medicine in 2004, where he later became Assistant Professor.

Jarrett is interested in the functional and neuroanatomical capacity of the brain to undergo adaptive or maladaptive change following injury or developmental challenges, and how those changes lead to paradoxical effects on neuronal function and behavior.  He has used invasive and non-invasive reversible deactivation (i.e., transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation) of cerebral cortical areas to study brain function and to encourage restoration of function after brain damage. He is also interested in visual system circuitry and neuroanatomy, particularly those involved in visual neglect.  He has taught neuroanatomy to medical and graduate students for over a decade and has been recognized by multiple teaching awards.
