More Exciting Than Glutamate

And by that I mean glutamate – the amino acid that acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter.

I haven’t been writing much lately because I’ve been busy with school, BUT I do have a brief announcement:

Some others at CUNY and I are working on producing the first issue of a new New York City-based neuroscience magazine to be named later.

It will be aimed at everyone – scientists as well as the general public – featuring hot topics in the field, debate, insight into the life of the neuroscientist, pretty pictures, and everything you’ve ever wanted in your whole life, written by neuroscientists at all levels of study.

ALSO, we’re hoping to have a sample ready for the annual meeting of the Society or Neuroscience in D.C. this November. So, if you’re in attendance, swing by the City University of New York booth and pick up a copy.

I’ll stop now so that activity in your hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis can return to baseline – there’s currently too much grad school right now to explain that last part.
