A truth more interesting than fiction

The science magazine Nature has a really interesting article "Neuroscience: One hundred years of Rita" that I can't resist mentioning. From a home lab to the Italian Senate, by way of nerve growth factor — Rita Levi-Montalcini is a scientist like no other. Alison Abbott meets the first Nobel prizewinner set to reach her hundredth birthday.

Our fictional characters should be so interesting! More about characters tomorrow...
