Medicine Nobel Prize goes for work on cells that form brain's GPS system

By Ben Brumfield, CNN



You may know where you are and where you're going to, but do you know why you know that?
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has honored three neuroscientists, whose work is helping answer that question.

John O'Keefe, along with May-Britt Moser and Edvard Moser, discovered cells that form a positioning system in the brain -- our hard-wired GPS.

Those cells mark our position, navigate where we're going and help us remember it all, so that we can repeat our trips, the Nobel Assembly said in a statement. ...more

Thank you to all three!

In addition, we thought it would be nice to find other notable Women who have contributed signigicanly to our History.


100 Important Women in History
Welcome to the website of the 100 Most Important Women of All Time: a page of 100 women who history would not be the same without. I, Shelby Ellery, created this site as a gold award project, the highest award that can be awarded in Girl Scouting that has to take at least 50 hours to complete. I chose this project because I believe that women aren't recognized enough. I can name so many men that I have been taught by my teachers, but I really can't name all that many women. This site is a resource for all those people out there who are just like me, no matter what age, curious about how women also affected who people are today and who the world wouldn't be the same without. ...more
