How did you choose your area of study?

I am from a small town in Illinois. When Lake Forest College created a neuroscience major I could not switch to it quick enough! The human brain is a fascinating and growing topic that our program covers extensively. I have participated in Brain Awareness Week and taken neuroscience classes that allow the opportunity to handle human brains; as an undergraduate I could not ask for more. The program helped me get a mentorship this summer in a neuroscience research lab, helping me reach my future health profession career goals.
