What programs intersect with ecology, marine biology, neuroscience, and public health?

Hi! I'm researching graduate programs and am looking to focus on ecology, neuroscience, and public health. I would love, for example, to study the brain of a specific animal and translate the findings into implications for public health and climate change. My bachelor's is in public health and I'm very interested in merging ecological sciences in the near future. If anyone has any leads as to where this intersection may lie, I would love to hear about it!

How do I know if I want to be in behavioral neuroscience, or psychology ?

I am 28 and have decided I’d like to go back to school. I’d love to study psychology, but more specifically behavioral neuroscience. I know this is a challenging field of study, I am starting off with only a few classes so I can get back in the swing of things and not overwhelm myself. I believe I would be an amazing psychologist, but my deepest interest lies in the brain itself. The emotional labor of therapy is something I don’t think I could handle long term. I’m afraid of biting off more than I can chew with neuroscience, especially after being out of school for quite awhile. Should I major in psychology and minor in biology or chemistry until I find where my interest lies most? I’m feeling very nervous about going back to school, and I’m afraid I’ll waste time going down the wrong path.

How to get into a medical school and become a neurosurgeon if I didn't take science in high school.?

I just finished my 12th grade. I was a humanities student. I'm currently in Turkey for my bachelor's in Islamic theology. I want to go to a medical school after I'm done with this bachelor's degree. What should I do right now for that and how to get admitted to a good medical school with a scholarship? I'm good with studies, I scored 99% in the 12th grade. My family is financially backward so they can't support me. Where should I choose to study? Note: this question was asked anonymously by a learner

How do I go about selecting the right school(s) to apply for?

What are my chances of getting into a school with a decent neuroscience program or biology program? I had decent ACT scores, didn’t do the SAT (it wasn’t an option at the time) and brought my overall GPA in high school from 1.5 to a 3.5 in my last two years. I know I won’t be getting into any Ivy-league schools, and I also know there’s got to be something feasible for me between that and community college…any recommendations for what schools to be looking at (or how to find schools that are in that range ?)

Which major is more beneficial if I want to be a neurologist, biology or health sciences?

I'm currently a senior in high school and I plan on doing community college with a 4 year college partnership after high school and the college I am interested in doing the partnership with offers either biology or health sciences for a bachelor in pre-med. After doing my 2 years at the community college (with the partnership) I plan on transferring to a 4 year college and getting a doctorate. So I just was wondering which area would be more beneficial if I want to go into the neuroscience field.

How can I find biology research opportunities (particularly neuroscience) available to me given that I'm a high school student during the school year?

I'm an incoming junior with limited experience in the field, but I think it would be a wonderful experience to partake in research, whether of my own or of a professional. My only worry is with the timing complication (what with school and everything else).
