After nearly 15 years in other fields, is it too late to think of a career in science?

I have a humanities undergraduate degree, and a master's in information science, but lately I'm pulled towards neuroscience and the biological bases for human psychology. I was always pretty good at biology and chemistry in high school and college (not so much in advanced mathematics or physics), but a lot of time has passed since then. Would graduate programs still feel that I have enough to contribute to the field, assuming that I'm not grossly under qualified? Do you think the culture shock would be great? (I read over this AskMe
, and while there is good advice there, I'm not interested in clinical psych.) Any and all insight is appreciated: good news, interesting news, or bad news. And my email is in my profile if you'd prefer to answer off-list.
