Well folks, sorry I've been so AWOL around here lately. Lets just say there's been a lot of long hours in the basement with the confocal microscope, and I've also been in charge of organizing the U of M Neuroscience Spring Symposium, which is next week. I'm super-excited about the three visiting neuroscientists: Nicholas Gaiano, Ed Boyden, and David Sulzer. So, forgive my temporary absence...although I'm sure Steve is keeping everyone entertained.
Speaking of entertaining, I was emailed this awesome anatomically correct brain cake, recipe which I just had to share. Someone put a lot of love into photographing the entire process of creating something both nerdy and delicious-- even using chocolate chips to create an EEG grid.
Does it make a person smarter when they eat the cake? I know people who could use it if it does.
Why is the confocal ALWAYS located in the basement????
More to the point, can you have your brain and eat it, too?
Ummm, cake. I meant cake. Must get that straight before I go back to work.
The Cake Is A Lie!
Pretty impressive.........the temporal lobe is a little small.....but better than anything I could ever do!
could i contract kuru or BSE from eating this cake?
