Caltech neuroscientist Paul Patterson, whose career spanned developmental neurobiology, behavioral neuroscience, and neuroimmunology, passed away on June 25th at the age of 70 from an aggressive brain tumor. Patterson was a pioneer and an iconoclast who was not afraid to work outside of the scientific mainstream; consequently, he made a number of important and seminal contributions that opened up entire fields of research. As his colleague of almost 30 years at Caltech, I watched his scientific evolution and transformations with curiosity, some skepticism, and ultimately admiration.
