How do I distinguish myself as a neuroscience major?

<p>Other than getting high grades? I am starting a research project with a faculty member, but is there anything else I could do to get really involved in my major outside of neuroscience classes? I intend to go to grad school for neuroscience or med school for psychiatry.</p>


<p>If you plan to go to graduate school, the most important components of your application will be your research experience and faculty recommendations, so getting involved with a faculty member's research and becoming close to other faculty members will be the most important things you can do for yourself when application time comes.</p>

<p>You could also start reading major journals -- Nature, Science, Cell, Nature Neuroscience, Neuron -- as the skill of journal-reading is extremely important for a prospective researcher.</p>
