In addition to the response from Kathleen, I also wanted to recommend some excellent programs that offer opportunities to pursue a career that combines marine biology and neuroscience. There are many marine organisms that are studied by marine scientists in an effort to understand how their neural systems work. This type of research can provide key insight into human biology and help to ultimately understand and solve complex physiological and neurological problems related to tissue and organ regeneration, sight restoration, and aging. The Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) has an excellent program (I-BRAIN) that you might want to check out. In addition, Texas A&M University has multiple opportunities both at the main campus in College Station, and at other campuses in Galveston and surrounding cities.
