"Most of the public’s perception seems to be that we know a lot about the brain and that we need to translate it into therapies. I think that perception is completely wrong. My perception is that we know extremely little about the brain and there is nothing at present we can translate. And I would love nothing more than to be able to translate it." - Thomas Südhof = awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
