On Thursday, last week, Laura Anderson, a neuropsychologist came and spoke to all the grade 3/4's about emotional health. Laura brought a 3D model of the brain with her and many of our questions were about the physiology of the human brain.
Laura clearly explained to us why she wanted to become a psychologist and the many different ways she helps people through her work.
Even after she left we still had many questions for Laura, which she said we could email to her :)
