Gilles @ Paris (thanks, Steffi) and Neurotree

Just two titbits:
Gilles Peterson is finally gonna come to Paris on February 1st, 2007. Screw the exam on February 3rd...

Neuroscientists spend a lotta time in front of the computer anyway, so they engage in weird activities, such as the Neurotree, a scientific pedigree that answers who was educated by whom.
Not for nothing it's called Doktorvater/-mutter ("doctor father/mother") in German.

I guess Paul Broca must be something like the neuroscientific pendant to biblical Adam.
Or who can find a more historical neuroscientist?
