Hello everyone,
I'm a Pre-doctoral Neuroscience student and I'm just spending my Summer as a Bioanalytical intern in a Neurochemistry lab for a Pharmaceutical company. My interest in Neuroscience began years ago as an interest in Psychology. I'm hoping to study ways of alleviating maladaptive responses to life trauma in disorders such as PTSD, BPD, and Depression. I'm not exactly sure how I am going to approach my interests as a doctoral student yet. I have a strong interest in gene expression and receptor signalling, but I'm also quite partial to the study of neural plasticity but have found few outlets for that interest.
I'd love to learn more about what I can do to expand my understanding of the field.
