From Blossom to Neuroscientist

Dr. Mayim Bialik balances acting with a career as a scientist and teacher

By Natalie Wexler | March 15 , 2012

Educators from all over the world came to Chicago for the T3 International Conference sponsored by Texas Instruments. Two thousand teachers attended the conference, which was took place March 2-4.

Although seminars and exhibits were the primary attractions, people were also excited to meet special guest Dr. Mayim Bialik.  Dr. Bialik plays Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory, a popular CBS sitcom. She also starred in the hit TV show Blossom, which ran on NBC from 1991-1995. But Dr. Bialik is more than an actor — she has earned a Ph.D. in neuroscience, which is the study of the human brain, and she's a teacher.

I was fortunate enough to interview Dr. Bialik about her unique and fascinating life, both on screen and off. Click Play Video to watch the interview!
