NOVA ScienceNOW Web Series Reveals TV Star Mayim Bialik As A Neuroscientist ... Playing A Neuroscientist

BOSTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- What is the correct way to store brains for scientific study? How does your life change when you fall in love with the neuron? How does a child star grow up without going to rehab?

Ask Mayim Bialik, the newest profilee in The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers and star of the hit comedy The Big Bang Theory . In NOVA's Emmy®-nominated, WGBH-TV-produced web series The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers , fans will learn that Bialik has a lot in common with her quirky Big Bang Theory character Amy Farrah Fowler. In real life – as on the show – Bialik is a neuroscientist.

In a series of intimate and fast-paced, first-person interviews now posted at, Bialik charts her unusual journey from child star of the '90s sitcom Blossom, to neuroscientist and Emmy-nominated actress. While many girls like her Blossom character dreamed of being a Hollywood celebrity, Bialik fell in love with science and put her Hollywood career on hold to pursue a Ph.D. Her neuroscience expertise now comes in handy as she helps Big Bang Theory writers get the science right on the sitcom.

In her Secret Life videos, Mayim Bialik reveals:

  • What saved her from the "curse" of child stardom
  • Bialik's journey from the set of a hit TV series, to the science lab – and back to TV
  • How the Blossom set became a learning laboratory
  • Whether The Big Bang Theory's Amy Farrah Fowler prefers Sheldon or Leonard
  • Why young girls should stop thinking of science as a "boys subject"
