      Hi @tiny

      Thanks for your question. My research focuses on understanding how children’s brains function to help them to learn spoken and written language. I hope that in the future my work will help us design some games that can be used to ‘train’ the brains of children who have problems learning to speak, read and write.

      I hope that answers your question.

      Hi @tiny and @smileyface123

      I think my research will help people in the future because it will help us to understand what cannabis does in the brain, which can lead to better education about it, and hopefully help people to understand what it does.

      Also I hope I can help people better understand mental illnesses like depression and psychosis, that can make life really hard for sufferers.

      Hope this answers your question!
