My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a serious young scientist, working long hours to uncover the neural underpinnings of behavior. Unfortunately my experiments require the cooperation of mice. It is very engaging work, but on account of the old murine attention-span can be frustrating. My animals are not of the same mental caliber as Mrs. Frisbee's acquaintances (lately of NIMH).

When not obsessing over recalcitrant rodents or my grad-school applications, I hang out with friends, read about British history, play with my cats and practice Karate. I also play the piano a bit (I'm fond of minor keys).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As mentioned above, I run behavioral experiments for a neuroscience lab in the City. We have several kinds of mutant mouse, and my job is to see if they have cognitive or behavioral abnormalities relevant to psychosis. I love it, and am applying to neuroscience PhD programs because I want to keep on doing this kind of work.
