Yes, I know I can easily google this... but forums is more fun Is the job title "Neuroscientist" a vague term, is it sorta like engineering? What type of engineer? How would I get started about researching the brain? Job prospects? Is it like psychology, that if you only had a bachelors, then you can't do "real" psychology work? I am a bit concerned though, and that is I have never studied biology. I am not sure how one would study this. I can't say it's simple rote memorization as I've seen someone mention here before that if you end up being able to rote memorize your way through a biology course, then the tests and assignments were poorly designed. Here is what I've noticed about myself. Primary interest as of now: Robotics. I definitely don't mind slugging hours spending time on math homework. Time flies. There is not enough time, as opposed to "this is taking too long". I like the stimulation I feel when I need to solve a word problem. Secondary interest: The brain. Mainly, about intelligence, brain capabilities (including all sorts of organisms), memory, processing, unlocking genius/creativity, learning disabilities, schizophrenia, EGG readings, sleep, depression (especially)stuff like that. I wouldn't mind working with patients or even students who want to optimize their brain for whatever purpose. I tend to read up more about the brain as opposed to random technology stuff. Both are interesting though. I am a bit confused on what career path to take about it. I know I am least interested in the field of Psychology. I am more curious about what is going on at the molecular level inside the brain when "things" get triggered. Furthermore, is it true that scientists barely know anything about the brain, even after decades of research? This is another motive; there's plenty of room for adventure. I also think it would be fun to perform research on numerous animals to see how their brains work. Watching a documentary on National Geography about the chimp/human comparison was very interesting, especially when they talked about the chimp's super short-term memory.
