Comment from Jason:
"One of the things I've really found enjoyable and have appreciated
about WSU Neuroscience is the diversity of faculty research and the supportive
collaborative environment and close faculty mentorship. Also, as a graduate
student, I feel very secure in my position for the coming years . . . not to
mention I'm getting to do the high-risk research I've always been interested in.
This is not to be found everywhere (as I've heard)."
