More from MIT neuroscience

As if you needed another reason not to work at MIT...

Now it appears that MIT is admitting that there may have been problems in the recruitment of jr. scientist Alla Karpova, but the commission just can't decide what to do about this. Combine this with the typical fight that women just can't cut it in science and it's no wonder that young girls don't want to go into the field.

Well here's hoping that we can change perceptions and attititudes over the coming years...
