How did you choose your area of study?

My interest in Neuroscience sparked when I took AP Psychology in high school. Despite learning a variety of topics, such as development, memory, and social interaction, it was the neuroscience aspect of psychology that intrigued me the most. The ability of neurons to communicate with one another and to transmit a signal that results in a particular behavior fascinated me. Learning that Lake Forest College offered a neuroscience program, that involved intense courses and many presentations, encouraged me to follow my passion and major in Neuroscience. With the knowledge and skills that I will gain from the Neuroscience program, I am confident that I will be prepared for graduate school to become a physician assistant.
