I’m off to Amsterdam to attend the 2011 meeting of the European Committee for the Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerorsis and do some sight seeing. Rita, my giant neuron, is coming along as a meeting mascot. Rita is named after Rita Levi-Montalcini, who, along with Stanley Cohen, discovered nerve growth factor. Nerve growth factor is, of course, how neurons become giant.
