“All Wrapped Up”

Here is the long promised piece I made last year.  It is based on a confocal microscopy image that I took at my previous job. All Wrapped Up, 2017 Just like a wire, neurons use electrical signals to convey information. And similarly to wires, neurons require outer insulation for efficient communication. This insulation is provided... Continue Reading →

Trade offs

As I have written in a couple of recent posts (here, here and here), life has been a bit hectic recently.  I have been feeling like I am having science withdrawal symptoms.  Last week, I have finally received an offer for a new position that I have accepted.  For the last 4 years, while I...

Left brain, right brain and dyslexia

In my recent posts I described how my work at NeuroBead has taken an unexpected turn towards raising patient awareness, rather than just portraying scientific progress.   Soon after finishing my work on "The Internal Storm" epilepsy project, I was contacted by a former collaborator I knew from an entrepreneurial initiative that I was involved...
