Allan Jones: A map of the brain
 
“ Excellent and informative talk. What a wonderful scientific attempt :D
He should collaborate with Dr. Sabastian Seung: http://www.ted.com/speakers/sebastian_seung.html. While he's focusing on trascriptomic of the brain, Seung's looking for connectome, find connections/synapses of each neuron. Together, these information will tell us not only what genes are expressed in each brain area or how many connections does one neuron has, but to let us see how these genes play roles on neuron's functions and understand more about the synapsis network on our brain.
Keep all good job coming, Scientists, for humanity ;D"

Charlie Todd: The shared experience of absurdity
 
“ There is always people that are, for one reason or another, "sour"; they seem to be unable to see the fun and good of any acts; they take every opportunity to complain about things, as it is mentioned in this video "people have to much time on their hands".. NOOOO! People CHOOSE to give others a moment of happiness using their own time, it doesn't mean that they have nothing else to do, they just choose doing one thing over another, one positive thing which benefits everyone, a smile on someone else is a gift you give & get!.... I am grateful for that and I am all for it! THANKS."
