Falling into my lap

Things fell into my lap today due to the kindness of friends.

Thanks to @MartiWeston for sharing Time.com’s interactive timeline of an encapsulated history of trying to understand the human brain. The timeline looks at the brain through the lenses of ancient beliefs, anatomy, psychology, disorders and neuroscience.

And thanks to my new colleague, a Science teacher of 6th and 9th graders, for inviting me to join her class in November to tour the Cushing Center at Yale. The center houses the brains, notes and research findings from Dr Harvey Cushing, often referred to as “the father of modern neurosurgery”. I suspect this will be a hugely interesting exhibit and wonder if our 70 minutes will whet my curiosity or if a return trip will be needed!
