A lot of people may recognize Mayim Bialik from the character she plays, Amy Farrah Fowler, on The Big Bang Theory, but not people know that she is also highly educated. Mayim is a neuroscientist in real life, similar to her character, and had been accepted at both Yale and Harvard, but chose to go to UCLA instead. This was because she wanted to be close to her family, and earned a B.S. degree in Jewish studies, Hebrew studies, and neuroscience.

That wasn’t all, as Bialik also got a doctorate in neuroscience. She took a break in 2005, so that she can concentrate on her acting commitments, but in 2007 she went back to get her PhD. She is also a published author and has a book called “Parenting based on the science of hormones involved in parent-child bonding”. 35 year old Mayim Bialik has 2 children and she has also been nominated for the Emmy Award on three occasions, which just goes on to show how talented she is in all facets of her life.
