Neuroscience

Milagros Tejada Condemayta ’15

How did you choose your area of study?

The structure and function of the brain and nervous system have always been perplexing topics to me, as a science oriented student. Such inquiries were aroused as a consequence of an accident involving a close family member. The accident affected a part of her nervous system and, interestingly enough, her behavior. Since then, I have wondered how much is known about the connection between cognitive thought processes, physical behavior, emotional expressions, and the physiology of our bodies. It was neuroscience that gave me a new perspective on this issue through empirical research, as well as a challenge to understand the complexities and impairments of the brain. For all I have learned so far, I am sure that my future career will be built on my four years at Lake Forest College as a Neuroscience and Psychology double major.
