Description: 
As one of the leading researchers in the neurological basis of long-term memory in humans and animals, and as a former president of the Society of Neuroscience, Dr. Squire is in a unique position to reflect on the different pathways that lead to a career in neuroscience. He describes his own path towards neuroscience - before neuroscience was a unique identifier for the field. In his view, emphasizing research experience, or "doing" over "reading", is one of the most important things students can do early in their career to be prepared for graduate school and a career in research.
