The great gathering of neuroscientists occurs this week, starting Saturday. This year, here in Washington D.C. An occasion when the excited young crowd on your Metro train are mostly carrying those cylindrical scientific poster containers that loop over the shoulder. Such a contrast from the usual dour look of our commuters as they anticipate the escalators being out of service wherever they are going.
I’m looking forward to seeing some new science, old friends and new instrumentation.
And I do hope that the escalators will work for once….
