      I am doing my thesis on the environment and how it affects our brains, so I am looking at sleep and nutrition and then I am looking at social cognition (which is the part of the brain that has to do with social settings like knowing when to smile and when someone is sad) and I want to see how that develops in groups who have had different environments!

      My thesis is on the ways in which parasites change their hosts’ behaviour. I wanted to know if temperature has an impact on the host-parasite relationship and how interactions between parasites and their hosts have knock-on effects in nature. 🙂
