Glutamate is in the house - UPDATED

Here's one from the...Glut-Tang Clan?

That's right, a rap about synaptic transmission. Accurate in pretty much every detail. Lots in there - glutamate, acetylcholine, addiction, dopamine...amazing. It appears to be a project for a class at Stanford University, Human Biology 4A. It's the brainchild of Tom McFadden, who also did one on development.

A shout out to his professor, Russ Fernald, who sent it to me - and makes a cameo appearance! "The mind arises from the brain" - word.

Update: it's won an award from The Scientist! A huge shout out!
