How did you choose your area of study?
The neuroscience minor took my interest after I lost my grandfather to Alzheimer’s disease. I became interested in how the brain works and how it affects psychological conditions, so I decided to pursue psychology with neuroscience. I am fascinated on how the brain and body communicate together. The study and treatments of brain disorders and abnormal disorders are very intriguing to me as well. I plan on attending graduate school to study psychology further along with my background I will have in neuroscience.
