I see you are from UofM which is where I got my degree. All in all
the Neuroscience PHD program at Michigan was an excellent experience...
and it directly led to me obtaining a tenure track position at NIH
without a postdoc. On the other hand I mainly do cellular neurobioloogy...
which you seem to want to exclude. Specifically I am into imaging changes
in protein kinase C within living cells.

Our laboratory at NIH is very interested in some of the same issues as
Edelmann, but I think we disagree with some of his assumptions at a 
fundemental level. If you are intersted in some reprints, contact me
directly by e-mail.
