How did you choose your area of study?

I have always been interested in how the brain works and wanted to learn more. When I discovered that Lake Forest College had a neuroscience program I decided to give it a shot and found that I was definitely interested in pursuing more knowledge in the field. I was especially excited that I was given the opportunity as a freshman to use real, human brains to help further my understanding of classroom materials. I hope to use my interest in neuroscience to head towards a professional research position or medical school in the future.”
