This fish, a variant of a species that lives in rivers in Mexico, has lost its eyes and pigment through evolution. In the lab where Ian worked, researchers studied both forms to try to understand differences in the fishes' sleep patterns. A Fish of a Different Color My Neuroscience Internship by Ian Oh I CAN'T REMEMBER WHEN EXACTLY I FELL IN LOVE WITH NEUROSCIENCE, BUT I DO KNOW WHY I DID: WE STILL KNOW SO LITTLE ABOUT THE BRAIN. I WANT TO BE A PART OF THE PROCESS THAT HELPS US UNDERSTAND ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES OF THE HUMAN BODY, AND STUDYING NEUROSCIENCE IS HOW I'LL PREPARE MYSELF TO DO THAT. IN ADDITION TO READING AND TAKING CLASSES, I WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTION, THE RESEARCH ITSELF, THAT ADVANCES KNOWLEDGE IN THE FIELD. 14 imagine May/June 2016
