      Hi ez3t1524! I don’t see patients as part of my work – my research tends to involve healthy participants (usually undergraduates at university, but sometimes people from the public). Sometimes I think it would be really nice to be able to help people on a one-on-one basis, but I don’t really have the right sorts of qualifications or background to do that – it’s best left to the professionals!
