How did you choose your area of study?

The reason I chose neuroscience as a major was it combined aspects of biology and psychology. I have always loved the brain and its magnificent structures and abilities. Also, a neuroscience class reinforced my interests. Learning all about the brain and the different diseases was so amazing and just made me want to learn more. Especially because I have a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, the class really opened my eyes about AD and it was so intriguing. Because this topic takes the brain and anatomy part of biology and different aspects of psychology; it is a great major for me to study. Neuroscience will hopefully help me in my future of medicine and lead me to great new findings and studies. Lake Forest College is a great place to nurture my study of neuroscience and I am so excited to go further in this part of my education!
