    Quick tip, if you can find an easy book that deal with proteins and proteins in action, and then put it on your personal statement that will look good!
    I'm afraid I can't recommend any as all the ones I am reading are degree level textbooks!!
    With neuroscience, if you can find something that concentrates on neurobiology, that will look good too as it will link in nicely with the biochemistry.
    Also, chances are the Uni you are applying to will have its own research department, have a mooch on their website and see if you can find out what they are researching in terms of biochemistry etc or whatever fits bets with the course you want to do. Then mention in on the personal statement. Because of the silly UCAS system you can only really do this if you are applying for one single university, however if you are applying for several, you can make reference to that 'type' of research in your statement.
    Does that make sense? if not I can explain it further!
