In this chapter, the author reflects on his close collaboration and friendship with research scientists Ehud Isacoff and Ed Callaway. He recalls his first research collaboration with Isacoff, an experiment in which they examined the effects of pesticide on the myelin in chicken brains, followed by their synaptic studies of learning with Dick Birks. He also cites Callaway's work on the formaton of synapses between nerves and muscles, as well as his own research on “real” brain in monkeys. Finally, he describes his experiments with Isacoff and Callaway on neurons in the behaving monkey's brain.
