Loyola's Stritch School of Medicine celebrated St. Albert Day with a two day biomedical science exposition held on their campus in Maywood, IL. CANlab members Krishna Bharani, Matt Kmiecik, Brian Swies, and Dr. Morrison participated on Thursday by presenting three posters of their recent work. It was a great opportunity to share our work with Loyola Graduate Dean Dr. Sam Attoh and Neuroscience Program Director Dr. E.J. Neafsey, as well as see old friends who have moved on from their Loyola undergraduate days to being medical students.
The Neuroscience Society and the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Minor are sponsoring a talk by Brain Bugs author and UCLA Neurobiology professor Dean Buonomono at 5pm on November 10 in the Galvin Auditorium (Sullivan Center). Why not take a look at his book before the talk? Psyc 382 students as well as many faculty members are already reading it. You can learn more by taking a look at reviews of the book or by listening to interviews on the book's website. Dr. Buonomono's interview with NPR's Terry Gross on Fresh Aire is a particularly good one.
As many of you know I'm an Apple guy. I learned to program on an Apple II+. I owned a Model 00001 Macintosh, their first notebook computer, the first iPod and iPad models. I've owned over 30 Mac models and I've used every version of their operating system. Everything good that has come out of Apple over the years bore the mark of the creator, Steve Jobs. Beautiful. Innovative. Elegant. Intuitive.
I've thought long and hard about who the most creative individuals alive today are...who the Renaissance people are...the great and powerful innovators...in my opinion the greatest of these during my lifetime is no longer with us. We will miss your mark, Steve, but each time I touch my Mac keyboard, I will remember you.
