My name is Nana Asabere and I'm in my third year at Bryn
Mawr. I'm on the premed track and I am majoring in biology with an NBS
concentration. I have always been fascinated by the brain and its seeming
capacity to mediate all that we classify as "behavior." The brain,
tangible and finite as it seems, is profoundly abstract; my curiosity stems
from my desires to understand the impetus for human interactions, spirituality, perception
differences, and the like. The very notion that the brain can regulate all of
this is—to me—the greatest conundrum! My interests in neurobiology were
particularly heightened last semester upon taking Developmental Biology, where we spent a
considerable amount of time exploring neural development and so I come to this
course with questions, questions, questions…

I absolutely love where this class is going and that it
delves into a bit of philosophy. To be honest, I don’t know that I’ve ever been this enthusiastic
about any course. Here's to engaging dialogue, intellectual stimulation, and
perhaps a stroke of enlightenment. :)
