plastic brains

I feel ever so plastic at the moment. Every new thing I’ve learnt in life has left me wanting to know more. But I can’t do everything in this one life. And, it’s so stressful to choose one or two things to start a career in. Of course I want to study psychology/affective neuroscience/developmental/social but […]

Empirical Project – Results
