I'm in my 2nd year of biomed and I want to do a PhD in neuroscience when I graduate so I want to know what things I can do to boost my application in terms of internships, skills, etc.

Any general advice is also appreciated

Your priority is to make sure that your lecturers know you by name and face and show them you're a hard worker and get good grades.
The reason being is that the lecturers will know people in the industry and will recommend you to them for internships if they feel you are capable. They won't recommend just anyone because if they recommended an idiot, no-one in the industry could take them seriously anymore.

Your priority is, in fact, getting research experience. If you haven't already considered it, you NEED to get some experience in a lab, either during the year with a faculty member, or this summer - there are plenty of opportunities for people in the summer between second and third year so look into those e.g. Wellcome Trust. Forming strong bonds for references is also important, but those will come along with performing well in your research posts.
