Neuroscience

Fezokuhle Khumalo ’17

“I actually stumbled upon neuroscience,” said Fezokuhle Khumalo ’17.

She is a biology major with an interest in human genetics, so she took Psych110 and enjoyed learning about the biology behind psychology; aka neuroscience. That’s how she discovered she was interested in neuroscience.

“Having declared a minor in neuroscience, I realized that I like learning about the most complex organ and all the networks connected to it. The brain fascinates me and this minor allows me to explore both my love for biology in general and my interest in the brain in particular. In future, I want to get a PhD in genetics and eventually go on to conduct research on the genetics of neuro-degenerative diseases.”
