Who knew that metaphors for biology could include the likes of The Odessy, babybel cheese AND Angelina Jolie’s lips? Check out the latest Science Savvy, entitled “Brain Origami” and gain a (new) perspective on the processes that generate eyes. Navigate to The Quest, or you directly to the article.
And for those who wanted to read the actual articles, sorry for the delay in posting.
