      I was 21, I had just finished my undergraduate degree and was doing a masters in neuroscience. It was the first time I met a neuroscience researcher and realised that people actually just get to investigate things that they think are interesting for a full time job! Every time I found something interesting out about the brain I thought WOW I can’t believe the brain is this clever, I never want to stop finding out more!
