My experience at the Neurobiology Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole

When I first read about this summer school, I realised two things: that it would be incredibly intense and demanding, and that it would fundamentally shape the way I see science. I remember hesitating whether to apply, but I had previously taken part in an 8 week summer school in Switzerland and it was an amazing experience. So why not do it again?
