Since I was a little girl I've been interested in how the brain works. After being in a lot of doubt in decinding between Psychology and Biochemistry I ended up doing my BSc in Biochemistry. During my four long years of studying molecules and reactions we spent a little bit more than 2 hours focusing on action potentials and neural structures. That was a bit disappointing I must say. After four years. of my BSc I took an internship in a neurobiology laboratory where I was able to hand-on learn a bit more of how the brain is studied from a molecular level. Those months of experience pushed me to pursue a MSc in Neuroscience. I can assure you I learnt more in that year than in the previous four, motivation I guess. I was amazed how versatile the research in neuroscience can be. From protein-protein interaction or neuronal firing to brain waves and computer modelling. I would roughly say that there are two big kinds of neuroscientists: the ones that work on cells, proteins and nucleic acids (Neurobiologists) and those that see the brain as a whole and study the brain waves and how information is processed in high areas of the brain (Cognitive scientists). I wanted to be both! I was surprised to find out that there is not a lot of collaboration between the two. The cognitive scientists don't understand about protein expression or gene regulation. The Neurobiologist lacks the big picture. My question is, will we ever be able to fully understand the brain if we don't work together?
