>12 varielle: Hadn't heard about David Hubel . . . his work with Torsten Wiesel on the visual cortex in cats was groundbreaking (and rather eye-opening, if you'll pardon the pun). I think of it everytime I play with my cat (or she sees something moving in the room before I do).

I HAD heard about Marcella Hazan . . . I still use her Classic Italian Cookbook on a regular basis . . . I learned how to make pesto and minestrone from that book . . . long before pesto was "fashionable" :)
