About Nucleus Ambiguous
Nucleus Ambiguous is a neuroscience blog for people who aren’t necessarily scientists themselves, but who share an interest in the known unknowns and the unknown unknowns of the brain (leaving the known knowns up to someone else, perhaps Donald Rumsfeld). The title is a play on Nucleus Ambiguus, which is both a neuroanatomical structure in the brain stem, and the name of a parallel blog intended more for scientists. There’s no placement exam required, but the minutiae discussed there may be of less interest to a broader audience.
Nucleus Ambiguous is written/curated/composed by Michael S. Carroll PhD, a graduate of the Committee on Computational Neuroscience at the University of Chicago.
