How did you choose your area of study?

I chose a neuroscience because during high school we had a small chapter in neuroscience. It was the first chapter in my high school biology book that intrigued me, and fascinated me enough to want to read more about the brain. After I read the chapter in the book I downloaded neuroscience podcast. Although I couldn’t understand the vocabulary at the time, it was still interesting to learn about the studies being conducted. Then I took the first year studies with Dr. D, Medical mysteries of the mind, which assured that I had made the right choice in majoring in neuroscience.
