Neuro-what? Is the typical response I get when I tell people I'm a neuroscience major. The reaction is understandable. Neuroscience is a pretty new field, and although it sounds fancy, the name doesn't give a lot of insight into what this study is all about. Since I'm a senior (ah!) now, I've been getting a lot of questions about what neuroscience is, what you can do with it, and whether it has helped prepare me for life after undergrad.
