The New Yorker profiles David Eagleman, a neuroscientist who "has spent the past decade tracing the neural and psychological circuitry of the brain’s biological clocks."
David Eagleman has a talent for testing the untestable, for taking seemingly sophomoric notions and using them to nail down the slippery stuff of consciousness. “There are an infinite number of boring things to do in science,” he told me. “But we live these short life spans. Why not do the thing that’s the coolest thing in the world to do?”
In other words, as long as you are doing it you may as well have fun at the same time.
