    Have you considered looking right in your own backyard?  Indiana
University has a fine group of neuroscience researchers, and a Program in
Medical Neurobiology.  You can learn more at http://www.iupui.edu/~medneuro.
As far as a "day in the life" of a neuroscientist...they are as varied as
any can be.  Stop by your local neuroscience department and have a look.
And good luck!
