What are your general comments?

"The questions that my interviewer asked was really very general, so I tried to elaborate more and make the conversation more interesting. At one point I was rather taken back though, when I mentioned that I did a research related to measuring EEG on autistic individuals. My interviewer is a neurologist, and he keep on saying that that was stuff that was done in the 60's and he couldn't understand why any researcher would still be doing that." Report Response
