  Unlike my peers who questioned extraterrestrial life or car mechanics, I often pondered as a child what makes the human body tick. I couldn’t help but wonder why people interacted with the world in different ways, and how our thoughts influence our behaviors. I became entranced by the intricate connection between the mind and the body, using this interest as fuel. As both a teenager who worked with individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorders and an undergraduate neuroscience major, I stayed true to this very curiosity that was sparked within me as a little boy. I have been eager throughout my life to further my knowledge about the creative innovations and the newest technologies aimed at broadening our understanding of the mind-body connection.

  I found that neurology was the perfect intellectual fit for me because of the subject’s ability to answer seemingly complex questions through a methodical and individualized approach toward patient care. Neurologists emphasize the skills and importance of teamwork and collaboration as well as thorough history and physical examination. This hands-on approach for patient-centered care is not an exact science; there is no exact science as to how to approach each patient interaction. It’s intriguing to see how a different path of questions for each patient could yield similar conclusions.
