Who are you?

My name is Ali Mattu. I'm a geek. I have a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. If I could get a Ph.D. in science fiction, I probably would have one of those too. I also like photography. Biking is cool too. You can read the rest of my bio here.

What's this website about?

Star Trek gave my life purpose and direction. I hope this website will help other scifi geeks develop a love for the brain and behavioral sciences, just like Star Trek did for me.

Why "Brain Knows Better"?

Death Cab for Cutie is a great band and "A Lack of Color" is one of my favorite songs. It goes like this: 

And when I see you
I really see you upside down
But my brain knows better
It picks you up and turns you around
Turns you around
Turns you around

To me, "brain knows better" is a beautiful reminder of how wondrous the mind truly is. 

Where did you get your logo?

Duaba came up with the concept while we were on the subway. Tiffany Mine illustrated it out of the goodness of her heart.
