Future of Neuroscience: Sanju Koirala
Sanju Koirala is featured in the Society for Neuroscience “Future of Neuroscience” series of interviews with rising members of the field. She is a graduate student in the Developmental Science program at the Institute of Child Development and a member of both the DCAN Lab and the Elison Lab.
"During my sophomore year in college, I took my first neuroscience course, which linked biology to cognition and human minds and how we think differently," said Koirala. "Even with poetry classes I took, I would sit there and think about how all my peers were interpreting the same poems differently and how they are thinking based on their prior beliefs or their experiences growing up. At that point, I was sure I wanted to pursue neuroscience as my major."
