How did you choose your area of study?
My love for the brain began my senior year of high school while taking AP psychology. I quickly fell in love with the brain but wanted to expand my knowledge and delve into the molecular basis of what makes us who we are. Upon arriving to Lake Forest I realized that the brain was a much more complex entity then I had imagined. My favorite neuroscience course I have taken was Philosophy of Mind. The class made me begin to think in a way that was both scientific but also with a much more broad outlook on life. I thank the neuroscience program for giving me a diverse outlook on life that I would not have had without the amazing classes offered.
