How did you choose your area of study?

The neuroscience major here at Lake Forest presented me with the ideal learning experience I wished to have. I was always interested in both the molecular and the resulting behavioral aspects the brain can produce. This major offered me a curriculum that allows me to form a more cohesive picture of human behavior. Because of this major, I also gained a broader perspective as to what scientific fields pique my interest the most through both research and the classes I’ve taken. The research that I have done so far has helped me decide on going into a PhD program for neuroscience-related research after graduating.
