    I was looking at possible courses for uni and neuroscience has really stuck with me. I'm a big fan of biology, psychology and chemistry, and the course looks very appealing. However, I don't know if I'm motivated enough for a career in it. I was considering being a research neuroscientist but I'm not really driven towards that and I don't want to do clinical either. What does look interesting to me is neuropsychology, I can definitely see myself being a clinical neuropsychologist (which seems the only job available for this path). I've seen some mixed sources on what i need to do to get there, but the BPS site says to do psychology and not neuroscience. Is there really no way I can do neuroscience too? Additionally, I think I would prefer research neuropsychology over clinical neuropsychology (I'm still fine with the latter though). Does anyone know if I can do that as a career or if I can do it on my way to a doctorate in neuropsychology?
