I am a developmental cognitive neuroscientist and I don't wear a lab coat. Except maybe if it's purple.

Daphne's (Mostly Neuro)Science ABC for Children:
Can you say A? Let's try the letter A A is for axon, AMPA, amygdala Can you say B? Today's the day for B B is for barbiturate, benzodiazepine C, D, E They're not so hard you see C is for caudate and CAT D is for Dopamine and DAT E is for EPSP, endorphins Can you say F? I think it’s time for F F is for frontal cortex, fovea, and floor plate Can you say G? Let’s try once, twice, or three G is for GPCR, GABA, and Glutamate H, I, J They’re not too hard to say H is for hydroencephali I is for IPSP J is for jugular, jumping genes Can you say K? Today’s the day for K K is for ketamine, kainate, kinetic energy Can you say L? Why don’t we try L L is limbic, and lobes, ligands, and LTP M, N, O Are these three hard to know? M is for measles and mumps N is for neuronal pumps O is for occipital, oxytocin Can you say P? I guess it’s time for P P is for prefrontal, pons, parietal and pineal Can you say Q? It’s not that hard to do Q is for quanta, quantum, quark, and QPCR R, S, T Let’s learn another three R is for REM and rhodopsin S is for serotonin T is for temporal and trypsin Can you say U? Let’s try the letter U U is for Ubiquitin, urea, and uracil Can you say V? Why don’t you try with me? V is for ventral, voltage, vesicle, and visceral W, X, Y Let’s give the next three a try W is matter that’s white X is for Xenopus oocyte Y is for yolk sac and yohimbine Now let’s try Z There’s nothing left but Z Z is for zebrafish, zeta Z is for zona pellucida Z is for zoo blot, zygote and zinc.
