Today I attended the seminar “The Human Brain, Development and Structure” (El Cerebro Humano, Desarrollo y Estructura) presented by Professor Emeritus Dr. Miguel Marín-Padilla (Department of Pathology, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover NH, USA) here at Vall d’Hebron Hospital (Neuroscience Seminars). Sincerely, it was probably the most pleasant seminar of the last year. Miguel is able to teach that science is not necessarily joined to complex and expensive techniques. He encourage young researchers to use their minds and innovate. Difficult words nowadays when science has become a pseudo-industrial activity.
One thing is clear. Real skillful scientists are modest.
