Personal Statement  The human brain is fascinating, physically finite but infinite in dimension. It is dynamic, physically and chemically ever-changing through experiences or a lack thereof. It houses one's mind and links the internal world to the external one, using chemistry and energy to interpret reality. Many suffering from severe mental illness have been robbed of reality. I strive to help them not only through treatment but also through education and research so that others may do so as well.
