      I don’t count my undergraduate degree really because I didn’t know what I wanted to do, only that I liked science. I think it was when I did my first research project during my Masters in Neuroscience. I took home a big textbook on the brain and would read it obsessively. Then I really knew that I found the brain fascinating and wanted to do everything I could to get good marks and make sure I could keep learning more. That set me on the track to become a researcher myself.
