Last month (BS 147) I discussed Charlotte Nassim's wonderful biography of pioneering neuroscientist Dr Eve Marder, so this month I am sharing the interview I did with her back in 2009. I originally learned of Dr. Marder's work when I went to Neuroscience 2008, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. At that time Dr. Marder was serving as the president of SfN so we talk a bit about that during our conversation. We also talk about what it was like for her as a member of the first large cohort of women entering science. Everything in this interview remains timely and I think it is an excellent compliment to last month's episode.
