I am eager to learn more about the additional quality of consciousness or sense of life, which is inherent to any organism with a central nervous system. Another field of biological interest is developmental biology, and I am intrigued by the cross-link between developmental and neurobiology. How neurons develop and connect in order to store information, is what I believe to be the study field of the future. If scientists were able to manipulate the processes involved in the development of the brain, it would revolutionize science and change the way we understand ourselves forever. Armed with such understanding and knowledge, it would be possible for the scientific community, in particular medical doctors and researchers, to go about the process of developing cures for devastating diseases such as Alzheimer.
