Brain science stars in a dress

The best things happens when you’re not expecting them. I’m trying to spend less time on Facebook as part of a New Year’s resolution, and one of my alternatives is to only get distracted by things I want to share on my own blog. Like this article, about the woman — May-Britt Moser — who won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, who wore her science on her dress, most gorgeously.

The discovery was “of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain.” Like stars that guide sailors in the night sky.

“Moser’s gown for the award ceremony was designed by British designer Matthew Hubble, who is a self-admitted science enthusiast. The blue gown featured silver sequins and beads, arranged just like the grid cells.”
