Why We <3 Science

We’re in love.

And since it is Valentine’s Day, we’ve decided to tell everyone that we, the NUIM Neuro blog, are madly in love…………… with SCIENCE.

To show you why, we’ve rounded up some of the best reasons for loving science from the twitter-based competition for science lovers this Valentines Day. We hope you enjoy!
