Hi, my name is Ed Keen, and I am considering a career in neuroscience
research. I graduated with a B.S. in psychology in 1990 (minor in
biology), and since then I have been a computer programmer. I have a
few questions about the field:
1. What are considered the best schools for neuroscience? So far, I
have only checked into UCLA and Caltech, but any area of the country is
2. Caltech has a "Computing and Neural Systems" program
(http://www.cns.caltech.edu/). Is anyone familiar with this program?
If so, please give me any impressions you have of it.
3. One bit of reluctance I have about getting into a research-oriented
field is the fact that I have not done much research, so I am not sure
what it is like. I wonder if it is dry and tedious (especially when I
see some of the obscure subjects that people are researching). Can
anybody shed some light on this? What is a "day in the life" of a
neuroscience researcher like?
Thanks in advance,
