Neuroscience

Kimberly Diah ’13

How did you choose your area of study?

As a neuroscience major, I studied the connections between brain, mind, and behavior because I wanted to become a neuropsychologist and I was interested in the relationship between these three integral things that influence cognition. What I enjoyed the most about studying at Lake Forest College is the abundance of research opportunities that give ample experience within my field of study. I conducted my senior thesis in neuroscience and psychology on how addictive drugs affect the development of inhibitory neurons in the hippocampus. I plan to pursue a graduate degree in neuropsychology.
