I enjoy studying science because it is a subject that encompasses so much of life's issues and practicalities, and a subject that can be applied and made useful to everyday life. Biological science is fascinating but it is even more exciting when studying abnormal function in medical science, from the facts in pathology to the application in pharmacology...
In recent years there have been a myriad of ground breaking discoveries in science. However, I believe more can be done in neurology as we have a worldwide ageing population with dementia affecting many sufferers and their families...
I was a young girl, walking through a large hall, full of strange noises and intimidating looking interior, holding my mother’s hand as we were “going to see Aunt Anne”. The large hall was in St Edwards Psychiatric hospital and the strange noises I still can’t decipher, however I remember this being the moment something clicked for me, I remember it being the moment my intrigue in psychology began...
The application of scientific knowledge to understanding how humans, and the creatures around us, function and react with each other has always been a source of wonder to me. The opportunity to combine a scientific understanding of processes and structure of the nervous system and brain with knowledge of applications relevant to our own behaviour, including those of a clinical kind, makes neuroscience such an attractive prospect to me...
A momentary break from extreme stress led to my first major “aha” moment. Out of nowhere, my brain is suddenly overtaken by an electric explosion of informational assimilation. Well I guess not out of nowhere, Ooman et al...
Why do people commit acts which are contrary to the law? Why do some individuals turn out to be aggressive and violent while others are not? Is it really true that some individuals are neurologically more susceptible or predisposed to be violent, aggressive and engage in risky behaviors than others or are they just the by-products of their environment? These were the questions that have been plaguing me for a very long time because of the distressing circumstances I had as a child...
From a young age I have been fascinated by how biological processes happen and work. When I went to an exhibition about the brain during my GCSE years I came across Santiago Ramon y Cajal and my curiosity for Neuroscience expanded...
Psychology is a great passion of mine. During my undergraduate studies, I was impressed by the P. Ekman’s work of spotting micro expressions in order to improve our social and emotional skills, or by the depth of transitions between behaviours, cognitions and the environment introduced by A...
Musings of the nature, boundaries and complexities of the phenomena of consciousness plague my neural networks frequently. This occurrence of consciousness arising from matter is, in itself, a field of study that particularly interests me...
