Disabled Scientists Are Often Excluded From The Lab

Scientists and students with disabilities are often excluded from laboratories — in part because of how they're designed.

    Albert Einstein said, 'If you can't explain it simply enough, you haven't understood it well enough'.Dr Andrew brings such simplicity to explaining the workings of the brain. It's actually a hacker's guide into our own brain. You are doing great service to humanity Dr Andrew.
