Today on Thesis Thursday we meet Chris Vance, who’s studying to be a neurosurgeon. This entails him studying language, its connection to the brain, and how nuance in a voice can change the meaning behind your vocals drastically. This story is not only informative, but motivational as we learn what made a little boy go from watching an MRI take place to a junior in college. Later we hear Chris’s favorite band The Killers. All this and more on The Homestretch.
