I am presently completing a Masters degree at the
University of Cape Town (South Africa). I will commence a
Ph.d. program in Neuroscience in the US next year. I have
been working on the visual system for the past two years
and will continue in that area in an attempt to
understand cortical computation at the microcircuit
level. I wish to speak to graduate students in
Neuroscience or Biology at any of the following
institutions: Caltech, UCI, UCLA, Alabama (Birmingham),
Iowa, Northwestern (see full list below). I have chosen
these universities because of their supposedly strong
Neuroscience programs and because at each of these there
is a scientist that has similar research interests to
mine. I would like a first-hand student viewpoint on the
academic and social environment at these universities. A
bonus would be to speak to students that have worked in a
laboratory that I may very well find myself in.
