Introduction I am a neuroscientist who studies how the brain encodes and controls emotions and moods. I have a great family including an adorable four year old grand daughter - a remarkable little person blessed with easy charm and an awesome frontal cortex, and a one year old grandson who studies you with thoughtful eyes before he decides whether you can be trusted. When he bestows his trust, it's a great honor! FOR THE QUICK & DIRTY INDEX OF PUZZLE DIFFICULTY, CLICK "FOOD FOR NEURONS".
