What’s With the Background?

David Eagleman's Lab at Baylor College of MedicineThey may look like squiggles at first glance, but if you look closer you’ll see there is more to it.  Since November of 2008, Don has been working in David Eagleman’s Neuroscience lab for Perception and Action at Baylor College of Medicine.  The lab focuses on time perception, synesthesia, and neurolaw, in an effort to better understand how our brains create our individual realities.  One of the lab’s unique features is its dry-erase walls, which are covered floor to ceiling with graphs, equations, notes and diagrams (and the occasional doodle).  Don spends the majority of his time in the lab, whether he’s conducting research on free will, or designing a circuit board for his drums, so those squiggles are the wallpaper for his intellectual world.
