My interest in neuroscience involves the field of neuropsychology. This field of study focuses on the structure and functioning of the brain in relationship to specific psychological process and behaviors. I am deeply committed to the further study of how neurological disorders are caused, diagnosed and treated as well as how the brain functions in relationship to the diseased mind. I have had personal involvement with individuals who suffer from different psychiatric disorders. My brother has had epileptic siezures since he was a young adult, my grandson has been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and my daughter in law is Schizophrenic. Dealing with such disorders in my personal life has caused me great curiosity regarding the causes of such disorders and has empowered me to seek the knowledge and awareness I need in order to further my understanding regarding the brain as it related to such abnormalities. The more I learn the more fascinated I become regading the brain and the way it functions in the body.
The areas of neuroscience that intersts me the most is Neurobiological Theories, as it relates to emotion and behavior, Receptor and Transmittor Theories as it relates to individual behavior, disorders involving development and the disorders that relate to the aging process. The academic training required to work in these fields would usually involve a Master’s degree or a Doctorate depending on the area of study chosen. Some of these fields would also require internships, clinical programs and residencies.

One career in neuroscience that interests me is Speech-Language Pathologist. A Speech-Language Pathologistassesses, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent communication and swallowing disorders in patients. When my son was about 3 years of age, an age where he should had been speaking clearer, I could not understand him. It was frustrating for me and more importantly, him. I would have to constantly ask him to repeat himself. After locating the Babies Can’t Wait program for assistance, he was provided with speech therapy. Even after entering school, the therapy continued until 2nd grade. The assistance he was provided with helped him in all areas, not just with communicating. My son is the reason this career interests me.
The areas that are of interest to me are (1) disorders of language, (2) disorders of memory, and (3) disorders of development. These areas interest me because again of my son. My son was born premature, has specific learning disorder, been diagnosed with ADHD, has a hard time remembering or retaining information, and he’s had trouble in the past with language. My son was accidentally dropped when he was a baby and suffered a mild concussion. He is now 11 and to this day, I still wonder if the drop has anything to do with his developmental delays. After several tests, x-rays, etc., his pediatrician says it didn’t. Learning more about these areas dealing with disorders and how it relates to the function of the brain, will be very interesting and enlightening.
To become a Speech-Language Pathologist, you must obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, a Master’s in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, have 400 hours of supervised clinical experience, and become certified. If planning to work within the school system, a teaching certification is needed. The job outlook for 2014-24 is 21%…much faster than average.
