Congratulations to MIT researchers named Discover's 'Top 20 Under 40' list
Congratulations to MIT researchers named Discover's 'Top 20 Under 40' list! According to MIT news, Discover magazine named two MIT researchers -- Ed Boyden and Sara Seager -- among its top 20 scientists under 40.
According to the report, Discover cited Boyden for his work on "engineering brain implants that can stimulate … with light pulses," which he hopes could help treat brain diseases including Parkinson's. Sounds like Course 9 (Brain and Cognitive Sciences), doesn't it? What about Biological Engineering (Course 20)? That didn't exist when I was a student.
