Welcome to Neuroscientifically Challenged!

Hi, welcome to Neuroscientifically Challenged! N.C. is a neuroscience blog that dissects current developments in neuroscience to make them approachable for the beginning neuroscientist, or even those with just a casual interest. It seems advances in neuroscience get more popular media attention every month. Not coincidentally, we see more advances each year that have a direct relevance to our daily lives. Thus, neuroscience is not only a great field to start a career in, it's also a field that it's becoming necessary to have a basic understanding of in order to grasp major scientific developments and analyze their resulting media coverage. Hopefully, this blog will help you do that.

The discussion here will inevitably stray into other areas of science like genetics, proteomics (the study of proteins), and other scientific areas, as well as a little neuroscience-related philosophy. This is my first blog, so I would appreciate any comments and suggestions as to how you think I could improve it. Also, if you have any topics you would like to see discussed, please let me know and I will do my best to comply. Thanks and enjoy!
