I’ve always loved mysteries. Whodunits, paradoxes, Riddles in the Dark, codes, illusions, imaginary numbers, Cold War spies, escape rooms, Monkey Island, patterns, DNA,  pi and e, coincidences,  …

But the best mystery inside an enigma is the brain

“Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”

Harry Potter

This is where I give free rein to new ideas about mysterious phenomena in the brain – seizures, anesthesia, sleep, intelligence, fractals, … And occasionally report on other happenings in the neuroscience world.

I try to stay grounded in the science, but I’ll give you fair warning if I’m veering off into wild speculation.
