SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

As a student of Biochemistry I have had a chance to understand the workings of the human body and now through this programme in Neurosciences I hope to delve deeper into the inner workings of the human brain.
I have a special interest in cognitive and behavioral neurosciences specifically social interactions among species. I would also like to explore the relationship between the nervous system and other systems, particularly the immune system.
