T. Todd Jones

They are the innovators, the young scientists who explore the world with an altogether original eye. They look at a jellyfish and see a way to understand the beating of our hearts.

They did into the core mystery of how it is, exactly, that the tangled knot of tissue and chemicals between our ears give rise to thoughts. The big questions, attacked from unorthodox directions: It takes nothing less to make it as one of our [Popular Science] Brilliant 10. Read more »
