Hi Plastic, Elastic, the PFC,
i´m a newcomer in this pat of the blogosphere but you have a nice blog which surely
i´ll visit more than once.

By the way, do you know who is actually a good clinical and academic neurosurgeon that follow the footsteps of people like Wilder Penfield, Harvey Cushing...
Thanks.

Thanks Anibal. I just received your comment, nearly two months after the fact. Goes to show how involving my first term of grad has been.
Off the top of my head I couldn't name a modern successor to these two. A professor of mine who is heavily involved in mapping the human brain, and perhaps moreso, comparative neuroanatomy is Dr. Patrick Hof.
I'll have to look into that though and try post about sometime in the near future. Thanks for the idea!
