How did you choose your area of study?

The human body has an intricate layout of interwoven systems that, when working in unison, allow us to unlock our full potential. I’m attracted to the all encompassing nature of the brain, and therefore decided to study Neuroscience at Lake Forest College. I’m especially interested in the limitless ways our brain can malfunction. Studying the crippling effects of mental illnesses is intriguing, and I would like to someday help people who suffer from them.  I plan to apply to medical school after graduating and work towards developing a career in Psychiatry.
