Excellent model for a research institution

Via Brain Waves

The McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT

Click on the link to watch a very inspirational 20 minute video about the research and wider goals of the Institute. Ed Boyen is featured with his Opto-genetic technology. I saw him talk at the Singularity Summit earlier this year. Really interesting stuff. Not only is the science here very impressive, but the way these people respect their colleagues and consider the wider impact of the research to be their keystone is just brilliant.

I love the quote at 17:00:
“We can do absolutely anything here. There are no excuses.”
