Reflections:
My expectations were perfectly fulfilled by the NCP program. When coming to NCP I thought of it as a professional, highly demanding and teaching cutting-edge scientific course program that it actually appeared to be. I think that courses provided by professors at NCP are the most appropriate ones to become a successful researcher in the sphere of cognitive neuroscience. I truly believe that the intensive research-oriented program of NCP fully prepares me for an advanced PhD program and if faced with a choice to apply for NCP once again, I would certainly and undoubtedly do so.
