The Master of Biomedical Science has been a great route into research. I’ve ended up looking at how the prefrontal cortex sends modulatory signals to the rest of the brain to make decisions based on the environment. The opportunities we have in the Parkville research precinct are great. We’re exposed to lots of guest speakers from other institutions, opportunities to network with other researchers and I’ve even been working with world leading researchers in the States. We’re collaborating on the back end of my project around a behavioural set-up, and I’m hoping to visit them during this project.
