Every neuroscientist boy and girl deserves a Neuro Christmas wish, even the grown up ones! Today, NUIM Neuro Lab supervisor Dr Sean Commins shares his wishlist for Neuro-Santa…

“I would love an ‘essay marking machine’ whereby the grade can be calculated according to a formula based on weight of essay, the number of times that ‘I love this module’ is mentioned in the text and other important criteria..”

With Christmas only around the corner, Neuro-Santa and his research elves are working harder than ever to make the wishes of each neuroscientist girl and boy around the world come true. Our latest letter for Neuro-Santa comes from PhD student Noeleen Brady:

“I would love a remote control that can fast forward time to the point where I have finished my PhD, viva voce and corrections. Also I would like an endless supply of tea bags and milk that never goes off as those tea breaks are vital.”

We’ve had some great entries so far from NUIM Neuro Lab members in our festive Christmas wish-list countdown, so keep them coming in!

Today’s letter to Neuro-Santa comes from Liz Walshe, NUIM Neuro Lab student and one of the blog administrators:

“I would love to have an elf at my disposal who can write code on demand for anything I might need, and who is small enough to live comfortably underneath my desk so that he is available at all times.”

SURELY THIS IS NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK!?!

Continuing in our festive Christmas wish list countdown, today’s letter to Neuro-Santa comes from Neuro lab’s own Dr. Richard Roche. All Richard wants for Christmas is…

“A button on my keyboard marked “Write Paper” that, when pressed, turns a jumble of stats into a coherent, well-reasoned and reviewer-proof article ready for submission to a journal”

– Dr. Richard Roche, Neuro lab supervisor.
