This memoir recounts stories gleaned from many years in the laboratory with students, postdoctoral fellows, and fellow scientists. Through these narratives, the author shares the amusing oddities and quirks of those friends, some of them Nobel Prize winners, others students or technicians.These informal chats give the reader a glimpse into the backsides of laboratories, the peculiar practical jokes perpetrated by supposedly serious scientists, and the joy and sheer fun of doing experiments.

"Proper scientific training has long been rooted in organized course work and structured laboratory practice. However, a considerable amount of education occurs beyond the classroom and work bench. In his short memoir, John G. Nicholls regales his readers with stories dating from hisundergraduate studies in London to his experiences working abroad with international scientists. Pioneers of Neurobiology is not only a wonderful book for any student interested in pursuing a degree in neuroscience, but also a heartwarming read for the seasoned scientist."--Danielle Gerhard, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
