<another view of this member>

"Because I am a social scientist, there aren't any particularly good photos of me doing science, but I have included a photograph in which I am holding a 'happy graduation' cake with a structural equation model on it. Also included is a photograph that is more flowing and luxuriant."

"Former graduate student in molecular neuroscience. Former postdoctoral researcher in synapse and circuit biology. Current neuroscience editor for Nature. Science, publishing and Web 2.0 obsessed. This is the second time in my life I have grown luxuriant flowing hair and definitely represents my targeted professional look. (I guess these are a kind of additional credentials.)"

"I'm a 21-year-old female scientist, I have just finished my BSc in Computer Science at The University of York, UK. I am currently enjoying the summer holidays before continuing with a MSc at UCL in London (Cognitive and Decision Sciences MSc). My main academic interests involve anything related to brains. I have had various forms of luxuriant (I hope) hair, ranging in colour from red to purple to blonde to blue-black to brown and back to red, at varying lengths. PS: Is there an official Facebook group for the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists? If not, there should be!"

Bob Kentridge, Ph.D.
Member, Luxurient Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Reader in Psychology
Durham University
Durham, UK
<more about this member>

"I am a Reader in Psychology at Durham University in England. I have conducted research in many areas of psychology. My recent work has focussed on neuropsychological deficits of vision, in particular cerebral achromatopsia and blindsight and, more generally, the relationship between attention and awareness. Earlier in my career I published papers in the vitally important (literally) research area of Cricket and death - do left arm bowlers die younger than right-armers? When? Why? You should read the papers to find out. My hair has been feeling especially luxuriant and flowing of late so the time seemed right for the LFHCfS."

I am honored to be counted among the scores of scientists throughout history who have amazed humankind with their piercing insight into natural phenomena and gorgeous, tumbling waves of hair."

F. Nagle, LFHCfS

Fintan Nagle
Member, Luxurient Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Graduate Student, computer science
University of York
York, UK

"I'm a 20-year-old computer scientist. My hair been getting slowly more luxuriant over the last six years, with occasional trimming (which meant growth wasn't monotonous and my hair is not differentiable everywhere, due to the lack of continuity). I think it's tending to a finite limit, unfortunately (probably logarithmically). Unfortunately it's not really colourable."

"I am interested in the neural circuits mediating decision making about risks and rewards and how these circuits & behaviours are disrupted by brain damage, disease and drug use. My master's thesis examined the role of dopamine functioning in a rodent model of risk-based decision making. In highschool, my hair changed from straight to curly so who knows what the future will bring for these locks!"
