SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Curious if the residents on here have any insights on research paths if one is interested in neurosurg? I've been doing research for over a decade. Last two years working with fMRI and other neurotechnologies. Next year, as I start med school, I am questioning whether to continue research (part time and in the summer) using these technologies or whether it might be better to do research specific to neurosurg? Also, is it advantageous to have an advisor who is a neurosurg or one who is a researcher using neurotechnologies?
