Why is temporal lobe called “temporal”
The name of “temporal lobe” follows “temporal bone”. But why “temporal”? The reason is that when people get old, the first region in the head which grows white hair is this region (see picture below). Thus this region is kind of a “time” region. That’s where “temporal” comes from. (I get this from some textbook but I forget which one.)
Try Stor, a research tool we developed
Stork is a publication alert app developed by us at Stanford. As a researcher we often forget to follow up important publications - and it's practically impossible to search many keywords or researchers' names everyday. Stork can help us to search everyday and notifies us when there are new publications/grants. How Stork helped me?
