As you are reading this sentence, thousands of neurons in your brain are firing and communicating with each other. The signals sent from your neurons are traveling at an average rate of about 119 m/s. This is just one example of the human brain’s power. Your brain weighs merely 3-4 pounds but it plays a very important role in your daily routine. All that you have accomplished today has been possible due to your brain. Yet while most of us live a life with a healthy brain, some individuals have to battle with brain diseases throughout their lives. I became interested in brain science after watching a few of my friends, whom I know personally, battling serious brain conditions. My primary motivation to join Polygence was to explore my interests in brain sciences and contribute to advancements in the field, hoping to make positive impacts in the lives of people.
