How did you choose your area of study?
Neuroscience interested me after receiving a concussion during my high school freshmen baseball season. During my initial visits to the neurologist, I found his knowledge of the brain fascinating, so I further researched the human brain: anatomy, physiology, and diseases during my spare time. Eventually, I gained a love for the science, and now, I hope to further increase my understanding of the brain and become a neurologist. Ultimately, I hope to use my knowledge of the brain to reduce the number of concussions received during athletic events and prevent athletes from obtaining these life-altering brain injuries.
