I'm a student, 22 years old. I work in Janelia Farm and investigate the neural circuits, underlying motor planning and sequential choices.
We thoroughly enjoyed Maxim's visit as he was showing the Bay Area to his mother from Sebastopol, Ukraine. They went everywhere from the Tech Museum, Stanford University, NASA at Moffett Field, Muir Woods, Haight-Ashbury, Golden Gate Park, Berkeley, and all over the city. Maxim is a PhD candidate and Howard Hughes Medical scholar -obviously intelligent. More important, He and his mother are extremely pleasant, funny, and enjoyable to be with because they are interested in everything, and really know how to find their way around by bus, train, and BART. I think we made good friends with them, and we enjoyed our discussions and planning every evening. It goes without saying that they were courteous and very clean. My husband and I agreed that we have seldom met such interesting and agreeable people. We hope to stay in contact with them in the future. All the Best, Nuala & Tom
