  1. you will find me a great official reporter for this meeting:
    1) I am a neuroscientist, MD and PhD;
    2) familiar with the topic;
    3) very “greedy” for the information in the field;
    4) very generous, lavish and opened to share and transfer the information;
    5) I am a great provocateur for a discussion….

    1. Hi Ludmila,
