NeuroTree

(Click the image for a bigger version.)

I spent way too much time tonight messing around on neurotree.org. It’s an academic genealogy site for neuroscientists. Truly, truly geeky. Anyhow, I got very excited when I saw that I’m only 10 steps away from Charles Darwin. I’m not a direct descendent (there’s a lateral line in there), so he’s not in the figure above. But there are some big names in the figure just the same, such as William James (father of American psychology), John B. Watson (founder of behaviorism), and a handful of Nobel laureates.

    Wait till your descendants look you up. They’ll be Nobel laureates just for having the same blood.

    And where do you find these fun things? Your blog is most entertaining.
