You probably know Mayim as Blossom or as Amy on The Big Bang Theory — but did you know that this former child star has a doctorate in neuroscience?

As a PhD student at UCLA, Mayim researched obsessive-compulsive disorder in adolescents with Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic deficiency. During her studies, the actress gave birth to a son, inspiring her to become a certified lactation specialist and author a book on parenting titled Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way.
