Jeff Holt: I am an amateur drone pilot. I shot this footage at the end of March / early April during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. As a novice pilot, I only fly my drone over parks, forests, water and deserted cities...
Gwenaelle Geleoc: Picasso said that “Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life”. I am using art to wash away the dust and free my mind from confinement.
Rett Syndrome Awareness
Jeff Holt: A Boston Children's Hospital colleague, Michela Fagiolini, asked me to make a drone video. Michela studys Rett Syndrome, a rare neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 1 in 10,000 children, mostly girls. To raise awareness, Michela and the Rett Syndrome Association of Massachusetts, convinced city leaders to illuminate several Boston landmarks in purple and blue. I filmed and edited this one-minute video to showcase their efforts and help raise awareness. - Jeff
A Walk in the Park
Graduate student, Hannah Goldberg, was recently out for a walk with her dog Olive. Hannah told Olive to go fetch the hair cell transduction channel. Look what Olive found. Good dog!
Jeff Holt: If I wasn't a neuroscientist, plan B was to
be an astronomer. The night
sky and astrophotography
have long been passions of
mine. The night of Jan 30,
2021, I captured this image of the Orion Nebula.
