A. Wallace’s Answer

Hi Johan
You might to want to pursue a degree in a program that offers an emphasis in physiological psychology or behavioral neuroscience as they combine both aspects of psychology and neuroscience. Or, if you want to work with patients, you might look into the field of neuropsychology. Finally, if you have a strong academic record the best curse to pursue after college, in my opinion, would be an MD/PhD program as you can do basic research, see patients, and have a lucrative career.

Getting a job doing this kind of work on the BS level is quite competitive, and you d likely need to consider getting a graduate degree after college to be competitive in any job beyond the technician level.

Best of luck!
