What makes us behave as we do? What produces our thoughts and moods? And what gives us different personal characteristics? I am deeply interested in studying the environmental and genetical factors that modulate brain parts involved in mood and cognitive processes. I also wish to find out how different neurotransmitters interact to affect the brain functionally and histologically. A dream of mine is to work in human behavior research that covers neural, psychological, and psychiatric aspects in order to achieve better understanding of the human being.
