It was the topic I found most interesting during my degree at imperial, plus it is still one of the great unknowns. The human brain is the most complicated thing we know of in the while universe and I love the idea something I do could help us understand it better.
Thanks for the question!
Simon is right, it’s so complicated and fascinating, it’s hard not to be drawn to it. Plus, we all have one, and I like work that I can relate back to me and the people I know!
The work I do isn’t directly looking at the brain, although one potential way that cannabis may affect the illnesses I’m interested in is by causing changes in chemicals in the brain, so I’m still looking at it indirectly!
