Time Keeps on Slippin, Slippin

We highly recommend the New Yorker article on David Eagleman,

Who was profiled by NOVA ScienceNOW this past season. While the article focuses on his study of perception of time, we think his research on synesthesia deserves special attention as well.

In fact, that was one of our reasons for profiling synesthete Steffie Tomson, who works in David’s lab at Baylor College of Medicine. Our other reason is that we just think Steffie’s awesome.

David's a natural problem solver.

Maggie Anderson

    Maggie balances the monastic life of a “Secret Life” archival researcher with the thrilling terror of biking from Brooklyn to Manhattan each morning. She has started to dream in lightning-fast slide shows of giant monkey feet, nineteenth-century medical illustrations, and bongo jams with Dick Feynman. Prior to working on “Secret Life,” she worked as a coordinating producer on the 13-episode Annenberg series “An Invitation to World Literature.” Maggie fell in love with research while getting a degree in History and Art History from Clark University, and was genuinely surprised to learn that she enjoyed researching science and nature just as much as Bauhaus furniture. More recently, she has practiced converting light into matter, answering Jeopardy questions before anyone else, and playing piano with two hands. She swears she’s almost got the hang of it. Her current personal research is on what to have for dinner tonight.
