How did you choose your area of study?

The structure and function of the brain and nervous system have always been perplexing topics to me, as a science oriented student. Such inquiries were aroused as a consequence of an accident involving a close family member. The accident affected a part of her nervous system and, interestingly enough, her behavior. Since then, I have wondered how much is known about the connection between cognitive thought processes, physical behavior, emotional expressions, and the physiology of our bodies. It was neuroscience that gave me a new perspective on this issue through empirical research, as well as a challenge to understand the complexities and impairments of the brain. For all I have learned so far, I am sure that my future career will be built on my four years at Lake Forest College as a Neuroscience and Psychology double major.
