In elegant, evocative prose, Wingate tells the very human tales of the early explorers of the nervous system, highlighting the joy of discovery and the insights that can be had if you just really look” - Kevin J. Mitchell, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Genetics and Neuroscience, Trinity College Dublin.
